The family of Angler draws its origin from the ancient Counts of 
Angers and Dukes of Bretagne, whose eyes look at us to-day from out 
the golden blazonerie of iUuminated history and ms., where their 
miniatures have been painted beneath their scutcheons and their 
crowns. The eminent genealogist, Col. Chester, after personal inyesti- 
gations among the records in the Paris, Rouen and Angers libraries, 
proved their descent, "ex antiquissima familii comitum Aungier in 
regno Franciae,'' and further showed that these Counts were of the 
name and lineage of the soyereign house of Bretagne, and that they 
bore for difference an escarbuncle of gold upon the ermine shield of 
Armorica. It was from the Comte of Angers or Angiers, subsequently 
the capital of Anjou, that the Dukes of Bretagne derived their 
patronymic of " Plessis D'Angers," in the dim twilight of almost pagan 
times. In the year 1008, Geoffroi, Duke of Bretagne died, leaving by 
his wife, Havoise, daughter of Richard Sans Peur, Duke of Normandy, 
and sister of Richard n., two sons, of whom — 

Eudes, the younger, Coimt of Angers and Penthievre, left among 
other issue — 

Alain le Roux, Alain le Noir, and Stephen, successively Earls of 
Richmond in England, and the founders of that mighty line of Earls, 
who for nearly four centuries were almost sovereigns of all northern 
Yorkshire. It was the son of the last-named, who married Bertha, 
heiress of Bretagne, and became ancestor of all the subsequent Dukes. 

Etienne, Count of Penthievre, and ancestor of the subsequent Counts. 

Raoul, Count D'Angers, whose posterity more immediately concerns 
this narrative. He left three sons. 


1. Raoul II. (some say Judiceel), Seigneur de Loh^ac, ^vho took 
part in the battle of Hastings, and whose name* stands sixth on the 
list of the eleven principal Breton lords who joined the first Crusade, 
under Godfrey de Bouillon, in 1096. He was the ancestor of the 
Breton line of Comtes D'Angiers, one of the most powerful fsEunilies of 
the haute noblesse of Bretagne, divided into two g^eat branches, that 
of the Angiers'. Barons and subsequently Marquises de Loh^ac and the 
Seigneurs Bu Plessis-Angers, subsequently Counts Du Plessis, Barons 
of Crapado and Chevaliers of St Louis. (Nobiliaire de Bretagne, 
Nobiliaire universal de France, also Roujoux, Anselm, De Hozier, etc.) 

2. Walter D'Angers, of whom presently. 

3. William D'Angers, who came over with the Conqueror, called 
" Fitz-Anger " on Battle Abbey Roll. The Conqueror rewarded him with 
the historic Manor of Bosham, Sussex, together with others in Shrop- 
shire. For account of this branch, which died out with Margery Fitz- 
Anger in 1349, vide Eytons' "Shropshire" 

Walter D'Angers was also one of the knights in arms at the battle 
of Hastings, and according to Domesday, Lord of Witham, Epping, 
and Waltham. His name, written "Angers" on "Battle Roll," " Ansger " 
in Domesday. In the " Researches sur le Domesday " he is described as 
" constable de Royaume de TAngleterre " (Essex, VoL ux, and Suffolk^ 
folio 411), in which latter county he held two manors, besides large 
estates in Devonshire. 

In the reign of William Rufus he commanded the garrison at Mans, 
in which capacity Freeman several times mentions him, and we again 
hear of him as being a considerable benefactor to the monks of St. 
Saviour's, Bermondsey, in which church he was probably buried. He 
was the founder of a race of gentlemen of large possessions, who in the 
military and other professions acquired great reputation and honour. 
The county histories tell us that they were of " eminent note " in Kent 
and Essex, in which latter county they had Copt Hall for their residence, 
and as "Philpot" says, "the head of their Barony." 

His sons were Organus Clericus, " obt sine prole," and Richard, a 
knight (Hasted), who obtained the lonlship of Carclew, Cornwall, temp. 
Henry n. 

There is extant a very ancient deed, without date, by which Robert 
de Cardinan gave Cruceglew and Pengaw to Sir Richard D'Angers and 
his heirs. Gilbert's " Cornwall " gives the best account, in briefi of 
these Lords of Carclew, extinct in the male line temp, Henry iv., and 
"who by their matches," says he, "seem to have been gentlemen of 
considerable note." In the British Museum are preserved three old 
deeds, taken at the Heralds' Visits, relating to this line of "Angers," 
whose arms were until recently preserved in the old glass windows at 

A cadet branch settled at and gave their name to " Angersleigh,"

in Someraetahire, early in the 14th century, where they were still 
reeiding in 1427. William De Angers, second son of Sir Richard, 
oarried on the Essex line, and was living at the accession of Richard i. 
He left a son, Richard, Lord of Epping and Waltham, to whom King 
Richard gave the manor of Copt Hall, near Waltham Abbey. Here 
"Richard Fits-Anger* fixed his residence, built a stately house and 
encloeed a park." In the next generation we find his son, Henry Fitz- 
Anger, Constable of the Tower in 1226, a Crusader in 1258-9, and 
subsequently of Simon de Montfort's party. He died seised of the 
manors of Copt Hall, Waltham, Epping, Fobing, Shingle Langfare 
(Essex), Traham, Pampayworth (Papperworth), Threford (Cambs.), 
Blunteyham (Hunts.), Fisherton-Anger (Wilts.), Bisherton (Southants.), 
and forester of all Essex, having been so created by Henry m. (Hasted 
says they were hereditary foresters of Waltham Forest) He was 
succeeded by his son and heir. Sir Richard, bom circa 1237, whose 
three sons were : — 

1. Stephen, d.&p. 

2. Sir Henry, his heir. 

3. Thomas, Lord of Losenham, Kent, of whom presently. 

Sir Henry Fitz-Anger, knight banneret, second son, was bom in 
1272 f stated to have attended siege of Carlaveroch in 1300, obt 1304, 
leaving by his wife, Ela, who survived him, daughter of Walter de Ely, 
a son, styled variously Sir Aucher Fitz-Henry, and Sir Aucher Fitz-Anger, 
a knight banneret, summoned to Parliament as Baron Fitz-Henry, from 
4th March, 1308, to 10th Oct, 1325. The head of his barony was at 
Thorpe-Arches (Yorks.), a portion of his wife's inheritance, who shared 
with her sisters the great Bruce barony. He died in 1339, leaving by 
his wife, Joan, daughter and coheir of John, Baron de Bellew, and 
Laderina Bruce, sister and coheiress of Peter, eighth and last Lord 
Brace of Skelton (who d.s.p. 1271), four children. 

1. Sir Henry, second Baron Fitz Henry, bom 1299 (some say 
1295), married before 1339, Beatrice, but appears never to have been 
summoned to Parliament. D.8.F. prior to 1350, since which time barony 
has remained dormant. Buried in Papperworth church.

was the Sir Thomas Fitz Anger of Losenham (temp. King John), where 
he had a mansion house, and founded a priory in 1241, disestablished 
at the Reformation, and now a ruin, supposed to hare been the flrsi 
Carmelite house in England.

The following extracts from the Visitation Books at Ely, are mainly 
noticeable aa they mark the turn of the tide in a county where the

In the Lansdowne Collection of mss. in the British Museum is a 
volume numbered 260, entitled '* A Vol. of Miscellany formerly collected 
by some Herald in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, probably Wm. Shower- 
Norroy," containing on fol. 77 the following notes of the above.

In the above description the Herald appears to have confused in 
two instances at least the arms of Bottitort with those of Bourchier. 
Those of Bottetort were *' argent, a saltier engrailed sable " or '* ermine 
a sidtire engrailed gules,'' while those of Bourchier were *' argent a cross 
engrailed gules, between four water bouqets sable." The arms of 
Lovaine were " gules, a fess argent between fourteen billetB or." 


The manor of Drinkstone was originally included among those of 
Suffolk in " The Honor of Eye," given by Henry i. to Stephen, Earl of 
Boulogne, whose daughter, Mary, married Matthew, son of the Earl of 
Flanders, and her father's lands in England, including the Honor of Eye, 
were confirmed to her by King Henry n., and conveyed by her daughter 
Maud, on her marriage, to Henry, fourth Duke of Lorraine and Brabant, 
and confirmed to him by Richard i. and King John. In the reign of 
the latter they were granted by the Duke to his brother Godfrey, 
sumamed " de Loveyn,'' and in this family the manor of Drinkstone 
remained till about the year 1365, when it passed to the family of 
Bourchier, afterwards Earls of Essex, by the marriage of Alianore, sole 
heiress of John de Loveyn, with Sir Wm. Bourchier. 

In the Brit. Museum, Add, Ch, 7,906, is the original deed of 
Alianora Bourchier, conveying to John Spicer, vicar of the church of 
Dunmore, and others, " the manor & advowson of Boding Aythorp in 
Essex, and her manors of Drinkstone, Schelland, and Felsham, called 
Loveynes, and the advowson of the church of Drinkstone in Suffolk." 
This deed has a fine seal attached, the arms of Bourchier impaling 
Loveyn, surrounded by the motto, " Bon temps viendra." 

Alianore, Lady Bourchier, dying 1397, was succeeded by her eldest 
son, Wm. Bourchier, Earl of Eu, who dying 1420, was succeeded by hia 
son. Sir Henry Bourchier, created Earl of Essex, 1461. He married Ann, 
daughter of Thomas of Woodstock, by Elianor, daughter of Humphry 
de Bohun, Earl of Essex, Hereford, and Northants, by Joan, daughter 
of Richd. Fitzallan, Earl of Arundel — by her he had seven sons, of 
whom William, the eldest, married first, Isabel, daughter of John de 
Vere, Earl of Oxford, but she dying «./>., he married secondly, Ann, 
fedster and cob. of Richd. Woodville, Earl of Rivers, by whom he left 
a son and heir, Henry, and an only daughter. Cicely, married to John 
Devereux, Lord Farrers of Clartley, in which family the estates after- 
wards became settled on the failure of legitimate issue. 

The above sketch of the descent of the mauor, shows the origin of 
three at least of the matches emblazoned on the church windows — of 
the others. Sir John Shelton, Lord of the Manor of Brent Illeigh, High 
Sheriff of Norfolk 1522 — 25, married Margaret, daughter of Sir Henry 
Parker, Kt., son and heir of Henry, Lord Morley.

The family of Morieux held land in the adjoining parish of Felsham, 
Sir Thomas Morieux holding a knight's fee there in 1379. The family 
of Bottetort was one of considerable position in Norfolk and Suffolk, 
frequently mentioned in Blomfield's History. Sir John de Botetort of 
Mendlesham, was Governor of Framlingham Castle and Admiral of the 
Norfolk coast, the beginning of the 14th century. He married Maud, 
heiress of Otto, or Hugh de Danmartin, whose ancestors from a very 
early period held the lordship of Strumpshaw in Norfolk, descended 


probably froin the Comtes de Danmartin of the Province of He de 
France. I have, however, been unable to discover any connection of this 
family with the family of Lovaine, or indeed with the parish of Drink- 
ttoncy nor can I find any consecutive record of the family of De Freton. 
Ralf de Freton and John, his son, were Lords of the manor of Fritton, 
CO. Norfolk, the beginning of the 13th century, and John de Freton, 
archdeacon of Norfolk, was presented to the living of Great Snoring, 
CO. Norfolk, in 1369, by Sir Ralf Shelton, and in the ^* Inquisitumes 
Ntmarum,*' taken in U Ed. m. (1340), "William de Freton de eadem 
Villa,'* is one of the attesting witnesses to the valuation of Drinkstoue, 
and John de Freton a similar witness in the neighbouring parish of 

Perhaps some of the readers of The East Anglian can explain the 
allusion in the above inscription, "qui istam domum const. IS4O" What

Mods of Journitinq in ths 13th Century, Illustrated in an 
Assize Roll, temp. Edw. l — In Assize Roll 8^ P.R.O., occurs the following 
incident : — 

Hugh, M>n of Ralph of Meldreth, and William le Ken of Pylarston, 
rode together from Walden fair in a cart (ven' equitand* in una carecta 
de nundinis de Waledon). They were coming along the Ickneild way (in 
regale via que extendit de Ikelington versus crueem Roes), and had got as 
far as the cross roads at Chrishall Grange (ad crueem versus grangiam 
AW et Monachorum de Tylentye), when it pleased them to stop in the 
middle of the road. A certain Henry, son of William Prude of 
Melboum, who was travelling behind them, was much troubled thereat^ 
and drawing his sword, cut off the first joint of Hugh's thumb, who 
retaliated with a sword slash on the left shoulder. Henry appealed 
Hugo, but as he was the aggressor, Hugh is quit, and Henry has to pay 
a fine. The idea of two men jogging along in a cart on the King's 
highway in the 13th century, was new to me. The date is 1285, 
Thursday in the feast of Nativity of B. Y. M.

Thb Paintsd Glass at Babdwbll (VoL v., pp. 257-8, 371). 

No painted glass still extant in the Eastern Counties can compare 
with that at BardwelL There are, unfortunately, only three portraits 
left^ out of the great number that must have existed in early times. 
Although that of Sir William Bardwell, the great warrior, is considerably 
mutilated, yet it exhibits considerable skill and beauty of execution. 
Sir William is kneeling in the act of devotion upon an ornamented 
cushioned stool. In his right hand he holds a long decorated spear, 
with small flag attached to the upper part. Round his neck is suspended 
a shield with the armorial insignia of his family, viz., gules a goat salient 
argent The field of the shield is beautifully floriated : by his side 
hangs a long sword. The Jupon or pourpoint worn over the haubergeon 
descends midway between the hips and the knees, and is finished with an. 
enriched border of escaloped work. The arms and extremities are 
encased in plates of metal over the chain armour, having ornamental 
condieres or elbow pieces beautifully worked. By his left side stands 
a pointed bassinet, with the camail depending from it, but now much 
mutilated : around his head is a gold jewelled tiara. The canopy is only 
partially left. The background is most elaborate, in floriated work in 
blue. The border is composed of fleurs de lis and other ornaments. 
•Sir William Bardwell was born in 1367, was m.p. for Suffolk in 1397, 
and died in 1435. According to the custom of the period, he was 
retained by different lords and gentlemen to fight either the battles 
of the king or their own. He married Margery, daughter of and 
heiress of John de Pakenham, Esq., and were both interred in Bardwell 
Church. His sword was in 1870 still hanging near his portrait In 
the window was a small piece of glass with the badge of the family, 
viz., a bear with a well on its back, and the two letters " de " which 
makes up the word "Bear de Well " or Bardwell. In the window were 
also many shields with coats of arms of their intermarriages with other 
families. On the Ist August, 1805, this beautiful portrait was taken 
and published by William Fowler, of Winterton, in Lincolnshire ; it was 
then almost perfect 

The next portrait is that of Margery Drury, sole heiress of Sir 
Thomas Naunton, of Chavens, in Rougham. She married Sir Roger 
Drury about 10 Richard ii., and died in 1405. She is kneeling with 
hands clasped in the attitude of prayer, her robe of purple velvet 
trimmed with fur, the underdress is richly decorated with roses within 
circles, &c. ; the coif upon the head is beautifully ornamented, and the 
back ground of a dark colour drawn out in yellow foliage. Above her 
is a tilting helmet and crest upon a cap of maintenance turned up with 
ermine. The figure is surrounded with glass of a trellis pattern and 
richly bordered. 


The other figure is that of her husband, Sir Roger Drury, eldest 
son of Nicholas Drurj, by Joan, daughter and heir of Sir Simon Saxham, 
of Thurston, and which no doubt account for their portraits in the 
Bardwell glass, as his wife's mother was a Saxham. He is kneeling 
upon the bare ground, clad in complete chain armour. The Jupon 
which is sleeveless is beautifully decorated with white foliage upon a 
dark ground ; above these decorations on the Jupon are the arms of his 
family. Cuissarts and jambarts of plates enclcse or cover the legs above 
and below the knees. The spurs are long and fastened to the sollerets 
or coverings of the feet. Above his head is a shield surrounded with 
floriated work overlaid with yellow, bearing the arms of Drury — Arg. 
on a chief (which should be) Vert two mullets or, the cross tau being 
absent, and the chief Dancette. This mistake, like many others, occur 
often in the Melford glass. The back ground is elaborately finished 
with peculiar designs in floriated work tinted with yellow. The figure 
like the last has a trellis pattern surrounding, and is beautifully 

Ipswich. H. Watunq. 

St. Petxr Mangroft, Norwich. — The derivation of ' Mancroft ' has 
almost generally been taken to be " Magna Crofta." I believe, taking 
into consideration its propinquity to the Jews quarter at Norwich, I once 
suggested " Manasser Croft." 

An entry on the Close Roll of 15 John (1213) m. 1, rather bears this 
out There is a grant to Hugh de Boves (Bones 1) of the house formerly 
of Dionisius the Jew in Norwich, behind the church of St. Peter, in the 
place which is called ** Manercroft." 

Later on, 16 John, pt. 3, mem. 6., the recipient's name is given as 
Hugh de Bonn, and the place called "Manecroft;" of course it may be 
"Manor Croft." 

It is noteworthy, while referring to the Jews quarter, that 'Isac' 
was one of the Frenchmen of the new Burgh in Domesday, which New 
Burgh covered the site of St. Peter. 

While on the subject I may mention one or two references to this 
parish which I have come across since issuing my Index to Norfolk

Henley Church is a small aisleless building, comprising chancel and 
nave, originallj of Early English work, but with later alterations and 
additions, including south porch and square west steeple faced and panelled 
with flint. Above the west doorway of the tower and below the window 
is a large stone panel with inscription in raised letters. 

Orate pro anymab : thome | sekeford et margarete vxor' sue. 

Between the two lines of this there is a shield carved with the 
Seckford arms (on a chevron 3 escallops), and a representation of a pair 
of scissors or shears. In the spandrels of the doorway below are two 
shields, evidently referring to the dedication (St. Peter) : I. A sword 
and key crossed in saltire. II. A chevron between 2 keys erect in 
chief, and a sword also erect in base. The sword in these shields would 
lead one to suppose that St. Paul was originally associated with his 
brother Apostle in the dedication. 

There is an empty niche plainly arched over the porch, entrance, 
and the inner doorway is a good example of Norman transition work, 
exhibiting the Norman chevron and billet mouldings over a pointed 
arch. There are five bells. The font is octagonal, the sides bearing 
plain shields within quatrefoils, and is placed between the north and 
south doors, the former of whicH communicates with a modem school- 
room. There is no chancel arch, and the roof is ceiled. In the south wall 
is still to be seen the doorway of the roodloft staircase, but there is no 
vestige of a screen. A square aumbry, north, and piscina under cinquefoil 
arch, south of the sacrarium, are now quite close to the floor, which was 
raised about 50 years ago. One of the south nave windows has mull ions, 
&c., of ten-a cotta, in which material, at the foot, are 3 shields : —

An inscription mentioned in Fitch MSS. is not now to be seen in 
the church : —

Several members of the ancient Medows family (now Theobald) are 
interred here, beneath a large ledger stone in the midst of the chancel 
thus inscribed : —

. I She was the only daughter of John | Gould Esq. of Woodford Bridge, 
Essex. I 

On the side of the tomb is this address. 

My Neighbours and Friends | I have desired to be placed by you 
and Hope | thro' the mercy of our God and our blessed | Saviour's 
Intercessions we shall obtain a joyful Resurrection, | but I beseech you 
to fear God and to obey his Commandments, | to say the Lord's Prayer

Masters and Mistresses, | tender to your Parents and Childr^, just and

each other, | forgiving each other even as God j for Jesus Christ's Sake 
I hath forgiven us. 

A third hatchment^ in the nave, bears the arms of Ibbetson on a 
lozenge. A tomb in the churchyai-d outside has this inscription : — 

Sacred to the memory of Harriet Ibbetson, | daughter of Sir James 
Ibbetson Baronet of Denton Park in the County of York. | In her the 
poor of Henley have lost a sincere and steady friend, whose ear | was 
ever open to their wants and her hand ever ready to relieve them. | The 
school of this parish was established and supported by her generosity, | 
and long and deeply will her loss be felt. | This tomb was erected by 
only surviving Brother | John Thomas Selwyn £sqr. as a last tribute of 
sincere affection. | She died the 30^ day of October 1843 | aged 67 
years. | 


There is an ancient stone coflSn lid or gravestone in the churchyard. 
A marble cross also to Capt. J. M. Theobald who died at Deyrah E. I. 
Febry. 6^ 1876, in his 37*^ year. A headstone dated 1881 has this 

" A leaning on Christ who bear up in His loving arms 
The bewieldered soul passing through the death's valley."

An Extraordinary Delusion. Diocese op Elt, a.d. 1676. — ^The 
following curious presentment is from a Visitation book in the 
Episcopal Library, Ely, dated 1676 : — 

" BamngJxmm. Jasper Docura presented for saying that he is the 
judge of the whole world. Item that he is the father, that he is the son 
Kii man, <b sometimes he says he is y® Shiloh, k that all men shall fall 
down on their knees before him, that the next March the payment of 
Tythee shalle all be at an end. 

Also presented being late churchwarden who refuseth to give an 
account before y® minister and parishoners of ye monies received by him 
during his office, he hath sold away ye clock belonging to ye parish, & 
by reason of his refnsall the parishioners refuse to make a rate for ye 
necessary repairs of ye church." 

In. the margin is written, "Cif 14 7bris 76 that the day of 

judgment will happen within 5 months, k the time will show & declare 
it, ft that it will h^ the first Sunday of March, & aUegat u esse pattern 
ft that he before knew the day of judgment^ ft that he was the 2nd 
Sonne of the father without division, ft that the sonue of Gkxl doth not 
know it, but God hath revealed it unto him " 

It is to be feared that a madman of this kind would receive 
treatment more severe than he deserved two hundred years ago.

Errata, Monumental Inscription (Vol. v., p. 383). — For Wicken 
read Dicken, Mr. Dicken was a Fellow of St. Peter's College, 
Cambridge, and was instituted to the living of Norton in 1831. 


The Tragic Death of a Cambs. Eector. — An inquest was held 
at Rampton on the Sunday after the feast of St. Lawrence, 1 Rich. n. 
concerning the death of Dominus John Stanton, rector of the church of 
Rampton. It was presented by the jurors, that on the Thursday night 
before the said feast^ Dominus John had some angry words with John 
Raven and William Shepherd, serving men of Sr. William de Windsor 
and Henry Dunning, when Shepherd struck the said dominus rectorwith 
a elub on the chest and right arm, and Raven coming up behind 


feloniously stabbed him in the right side, of which stab he died on the 
morrow about the first hour. Raven is guilty of homicide, and Shepherd 
of aiding and abetting, but they have both run away. (Coroners Roll 24.) 
At this time of the year, August 10th-13th, the summer night is lighted 
up by the magnificent display of meteors radiating from Gamma-Persei, 
which were named by the medieval astrologers " the fiery tears of St. 
Lawrence." This coincidence of the murder of a priest with such 
apparent weeping of a saint might have proved a gi*and theme for a 
revival meeting, had there been anyone in Rampton with the necessary 
knowledge of astrology.

Hbokford, Haokford, db Hagkford.— Can any of the readers of the 
East Anglian give any particulars of the descent of this manorial family! 

Sir William de Hackford, Ent. Manor of Hackford, Norfolk, bare 
for his coat armour "Chequy or and vert," temp, Henry i., vide 
''BXomefield'a Norfolk," 

There have been Heckfoi'ds at the two Bentleys, Ardleigh, Colchester, 
Halsted and Thaxtead, in Essex, the latter branch having the above 
arms over a tomb in Thaxted church. Raynor Heckford of Thaxtead, 
was a subscriber to Morant's His, of Essex in 1768. He graduated 
at Jes. Coll. Camb.; B.A. 1730, m.a. 1734. 

There was also a family who were Rectors of Somersham and Gt. 
Comard, in Suffolk, and they held the latter living from 1690 to 1803, 
but no trace of their burial can be found at either place. 

About the middle of the last century a family of this name 
appeared in and about b.b. London, and coming later, a cousin of mine 
(the late Nathaniel Heckford, m.d.) founded the East London Hospital 
for children at Shadwell in 1868. 

I am anxious to find the registration of the birth of Nathaniel 
Heckford, my great-great-grandfather, who died at Lambeth, and was 
buried at Rotherhithe, Surrey, in 1818, aged 91. 

A Nathaniel Heckford graduated at Leyden in 1669, and a Nathan 
Heckford of Halsted took out Letters Patent for an invention in 1684 ; 
and issued a token — ^particulars of the patent I will give in a future issue. 

I may mention that some of the family at Hakted, Thaxted and 
in London, were Apothecaries.

SoouLTON Mbrb. — Can anyone tell me if this was ever known by 
any other name ? The late keeper told me that the gulls come annually 
on the 7th March. They come " mounterious way," — very lofty — you 
can hear them long before you can see them. They begin to go away 
the last week in July, and are all gone by the middle of August. If 
some ' babies ' are left, two or three old ones will come back to take 'om 
away. In one particularly dry season they died by skepfulls, and 
wouldn't even eat maggots specially bred for them in horse flesh. 
Scoulton, said he, was '* like a mother-home to the gulls."

Bbanbbt of Shottishah, Hablbston, PoRiNQLAND, &c, — Information 
is required to complete a pedigree of the above family, especially the 
parentage of Robert Bransby of Harleston, died 1686-87, father of 
Robert Bransby, steward to the Duke of Norfolk (will proved 1700). 
His son, Thos. Bransby, married his cousin (?) Elizabeth Bransby of 
Shottisham, whose son, James Bransby, married Anna Maria, daughter 
of James Paston, m.d., of Harleston.

Obadiah Sbdgwiok (Vol. v., pp. 336, 368). — Upon looking through 
the Chelmsford Registers I find the following entries : — 

Baptitm, Oct 26, 1686. 
John, ton of Mr. Obadiah Sedgewicke, of London, and of Judith hia wife. 

Burial, Nov. 6, 1686. 
Judiik, wife of Mr. Obadiah Sedgewioke, of London (Minister). 

Newcourt places him amongst the rectors of St. Paul's, Covent 
Garden, although he says he was never properly rector. He also describes 
him as preacher of St Mildred, Bread Street^ but does not mention him 
under the head of St Andrew's, Holbom. 

As the death of his wife at Chelmsford, occurred about three years 
before he was instituted to the vicarage of Coggeshall, he was probably 
doing duty here as curate for a short time during the incumbency of 
the Bev. Dr. Mitchelson. 

As the first entry in Coggeshall Register is the baptism of his son 
Francis, on 2 July, 1640, according to ''Beaumont^" he must have 
married a seoond time. I do not find in the Chelmsford Registers any 


entry relating to the burial of the son John, baptised at Chelmsford, iu 
1636, presumably therefore he survived his mother, which would account 
for the Jive children, alluded to at p. 336.

Richard Gardinbr, of Mouvt Amblia, Co. Norfolk., (pp. 319, 
368.) — He was son of the Revd. John Gardiner, ll.d., rector of Mass- 
ingham Magna, Norfolk, and grandson of John Gardiner of Aldborough 
Hall, Suffolk. Richard was bom at Saffron Walden, Essex, 4 October, 
1723, and died at Mount Amelia, Ingoldisthorpe, Norfolk, 14 September, 
1781. He married Ann, only daughter of Benjamin Bromhead, Esq., of 
Thurlby, Lincoln. He served in the 12th regiment of Foot, and 
afterwards in the West Indies as Captain of Marines on boaid the 
**Rippon," but retired at the Peace of Paris in 1763, and settled in 
Norfolk, first at Swaffham and afterwards at Ingoldisthorpe. He 
acquired considerable local reputation as a wit and satirist, writing under 
the non-de-plume of Dick Merryfellow. Full information respecting 
him will be found in a volume published after his death, entitled. 
Memoirs of the Life and Writings of R . ch . . d G . rd . n . r, Esqr., alias 
Dick Merryfellow. London, 1782. 

Hunstanton HalL Hamon lb Stranoe. 

A Life of this person was published in 1782 under the title of 
" Memoirs of the Life and Writings (Prose and Verse) of R . ch . . d 
G.rd.n.r Esq alias Dick Merry-Fellow of Serious and Facetious 
Memory." He was a son of the Revd. John Gardiner, ll.d., rector of 
Great Massingham, Co. Norfolk, and grandson of John Gardiner, Esq., 
of Aldborough Hall, Co. Suffolk. Mount Amelia was in the parish of 
Ingoldisthorpe. There is a view of it in Armstrong's History of Norfolk 
(Vol. iz.) I do not think Richard Gardiner of Mount Amelia is 
identical with Richard Gardiner, Esq., of Aldborough, whose daughter 
married Sir John Maxwell. 

Norwich. Gbo. W. G. Babnabd. 

Richard Gardiner was a scurrilous local political writer of soaie 
note in Norfolk in the last century, and went by the nickname of 
" Dick Merryfellow." By his life, which is rather a scarce little book, 
8vo., London (Eearsly) and Norwich (Booth), 1782, it seems he was 
bom at Saffron Walden, in Essex, 4 Oct., 1723, and educated at Eton 
and Cambridge. He died 14 Septr., 1781. 

As to 1^ writings and life, see my short History of Norfolk (EUiot 
Stock), and a life of Coke of Holkham, which will appear in the next 
part of the Transactions of the Royal Agricultural Society.

In the Book of Common Prayer is, " Grace Pickering, her book

In the Bible is written, " This Holy Bible belongs to the Vicar of 
Whaddon for the time being Jan. 20th 1861. S. R. Dowell." I obtained 
it thus. Mr. Wenham, a farmer of Whaddon under Lord Hardwicke, 
had it from his father, whose ancestors had occupied the same farm in 
the parish of Whaddon for many generations, and had often served the 
office of churchwarden of Whaddon. Upon the introduction of the 
present authorised version in the reign of James i., the older translation 
of the Bishop's Bible was superseded and the clergyman probably being 
non-resident, the churchwanien of that year took possession of it, and 
brought it to his own house, where it has been lying generation after 
generation, till the present time when it was rescued from the flames in 
which the house was destroyed, and sold to me about 1856. This is 
Archbishop Parker's or the Bishop's Bible the date is 1578." 

The title page is missing, but otherwise it is in very good condition.

Thomas Tempest was Lord of the Manor of Whaddon, by inheritance 
from the D'Eschalers through the female line. He was a Roman 
Catholic — ^the only one in this neighbourhood. He is entered in the 
Subsidy rolls as a "recusant convict." In 1641, in addition to paying 
at a higher rate than the rest of the parish, he had to pay Is. 4d. for 
each member of his household : viz., Thomas Tempest^ junior, William, 
Robert and Bridget Tempest, and his servant Elizabeth.

The following is copied from the notes of '* Honest Tom Martin " 
{Norf, Church CollecHony Vol. ii.), now in my library, and is interesting 
as giving two Norfolk place-names, '' Summerwood " and "Calkwell 
Sand," hitherto unknown, and as referring to an " Ea " at Titchwell- 
frethwater, and containing a good "Lott" for otters 200 years ago. 
Possibly Mr. L'Estrange of Hunstanton has the originals from which tliese 
notes were taken, and can give some further notes of how his ancestor 
*^ washed " himself in the sea.

Lib. C. by me T. M. 


Since my memory the comon directions for all Travellers hold the 
Same as I suppose it had done in former times, to go for Docking by 
Somerwood * which then consisted of three or four score old Elms, and 
Thomes, and were both a sea and Land Marsh. But the hard Winter 
A®. 1683 killed the greater part of them, and they were after taken 
down for fireing by Mr. Hare. They have been since yearly diminishing 
as they died, — and in this year 1717 the storm in October tore down 
the last single and remaining thorn tree. So that only the old bank 
now remark the place. 

TiCHWELL Ea, and Marshbs. 

I remember most of those Marshes lying between Tichwell town and 
the Lands to have been fresh pasture, and a great water called Tichwell 
Ea with a strong Reed land, a good lake for fish especially Fresh water 
Butts, and a strong hold for Otters ; but by one nights high tide and a 
strong winter A^ 168*.* all the great sand hills called the Meeles were 
entirely Levels, and the sea having wrought itself a channel out to 
shore near Brancaster Bank tis likely now to continue a Salt Marsh. 

For the property being in College, and the Fellows contenting 

themselves with the old rent, neither the Principal Tenant under them 
nor his under-tenants will care to contribute towards the charges of 
Imbanking them a fresh. Brancaster Bank being by this meanes 
exposed to the strong West winds sufifers very much and t'will be great 
expense to keep them in repair. 

Thb Placb callbd the Roots on Hunston Shore. 

About two furlongs distance from Calkwell sand gap over the first 
Drain or Chanele, there were several remains of trees, the trunks and 
part of the roots lying flat, the ground oozy and clayey in. When I 
have washed at sea A^' 1683 dsc I us'd to lay my Cloathes on them, and 
formerly some Qate posts to the Messages in Town were said to be of 
those trees. One of which is now standing A<> 1717 and is conjectured 
* Summerfield House ia marked on Bryant'i map as 1} miles N.W. from Dookinf , 
r the site of Southmere church. 


to be of the Ewe tree bj Carpenters and men of Knowledge. The 
Raging tide8 have sometimes brought them upon shore. But the last 
root and some about of the body I ordered my cart one time 

when they went down for some wreck and fayled to bring them with 
them into my yards. Against this place there was a low place and 
danger of a breach in the meeles wch. I stoped by making a thin hedge 
of whinns, which when the drift of the sands had Levelled I set another 
upon that, and so the bank and Marham gathered upon it, and has 
since grown Green and strong.

1. Joanna married first, circa 1340, Sir John de Shadelowe, 
Knight of the Bath, and a judge, whD possessed Copt Hall in right of 
his wife in 1350. Their sons exchanged the manor, and the male line

field, Essex, armiger, and left issue, William, Lord of Papperworth, " ex 
materna hereditate."

de Cassingham, and had : —

Arkham, whose son was found to be aged 20, 40 Edward iii.

Uuloomb, knight of the shire and sheriff of Kent in 1397. By this 
marriage the fkmilj came to quarter St. Leger, Petevin, and Ottringden 
(ancient lords of the manor). 

Henry Anger, the only son of this marriage, succeeded to Otterden, 
his mother's inheritance, where he was residing in 1441. Buried in 
north chapel of the church beneath a stately tomb, on which reposed his 
effigj earved in white alabaster.

flourished temp. Henry viii. {Vintatian Essex, 1558.) 

Sir Anthony, the heir, succeeded to Otterden, where he erected a 
brick mansion about the latter end of Henry's reign. In 1542 he 
contributed £41 towards a loan being raised for the king. He was an 
active advocate in the destruction of the monasteries, and appears to 
have been in high favor with his royal master, who was very generous 
to him, rewarding him with various grants out of the forfeited estates 
of the Earl of Essex, besides knighting and creating him " Master of 
the Jewels." Among other lands Sir Anthony was granted the entire 
manor of Lyminge, Kent, one of the largest in the county, extending 
over Romney marsh and to the borders of Sussex on the south, and in 
the west covering several parishes in the Weald. As a military 
commander he attained considerable celebrity, but was slain at the siege 
of Calais in 1557. His wife, Affra, sister of Sir John Comwallis, also 
died there, and both were brought home and buried in Bishopsboume 
church, he having acquired that manor from Thomas Colepeper. On 
the curious black and white marble tablets to the Angers in Bourne 
church, he is described as *' Marechal of Calais and Guisnes.''

1. Sir John of Otterden Place, who had by his wife, Anne, daughter 
of Sir William Eellaway, an only daughter and heiress, Joan, " maid of 
honour " to Queen Elizabeth, who gave her in marriage to the famous 
navigator. Sir Humphrey Gilbert. 

2. * Edward, on whom there was an Inquest Post Mortem, 10th 
May, 1568, and who inherited under his father's will the manor of 
Bishopsboume, and married Mabel, daughter of Sir Thomas Wrothe, in 
whose arms Edward vi. died. He had issue : —

days at the time of his father's decease. 

2. Elizabeth, married Sir William Lovelace, was grandmother of the 
cavalier-poet, and buried in Canterbury cathedral, 3rd December, 1627. 

Sir Anthony married Margaret, daughter of Edwin Sandys, 
Archbishop of York. She was bom on " December 22nd at 3 of tiie 
clock in the afternoon in the year of our Lord God 1566," and dying, 
»t, 24, on 13th October, 1590, was buried in the Bourne vault, her

4. Edwin, father of Anthony, who sat in the Restoration Parlia- 
ment of 1660; and of John, the celebrated royalist divine, bom 1619, 
created d.d. by royal mandate at the restoration, and rewarded with the 
rectory of Allhallows, Lombard Street, died 12th March, 1701, and 
buried in Canterbury Cathedral (vide Gen, Biog.) 

5. Sir William Anger, m.p. Canterbury (?) 

Sir Anthony, the eldest son, was knighted at Chatam, 4th July, 
1604, sheriff of Kent 1615, obt. and was buried at Bourne, 24th July, 
1637, leaving among other issue : — 

1. Sir Anthony, born 1614, knighted by Charles i., and married 
first, Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Robert Hatton, who was buried at 
Bourne, September 19th, 1648; married secondly, Elizabeth, daughter 
of Sir Thomas Hewett. He was an " ardent royalist," and advanced to 
a baronetcy by the king, on 4th July, 1666, obt. May, 1692, and buried 
in the Bourne vault on 31st of the month. 

2. Hester, the wife of Sir Edmund Bowyer of Camberwell, knight, 
called for her exquisite beauty "The Star in the East." Walpole 
mentions her, and the poet Cowper praises her loveliness and the 
departed splendours of Bourne in some graceful lines. One of Jansen's 
best works is her portrait, which now hangs at St. Alban's Court. She 
obt. 19th December, 1665, and wad buried in Camberwell church. 

By his second wife Sir Anthony left • — 

1. Sir Anthony, second baronet, obt. in 1694, set. 10 years.

Teale, who married Major-General Sir Charles Shipley, and great- 
grandmother of Elizabeth, Countess of Buchaii, who obt. 1828, mother 
of the 13th Earl. There had been a strange vitality in this ancient 


Stock through seven centuries, and then with this generation its history 

closed suddenly and for ever. On the death of his brother the baronetcy 

passed to Sir Hewett^ who became third baronet, and had " a very fine 

new built brick house at Bourne.'' But alas, he died unmarried on 20th 

May, 1726, the last of his line, and was buried in the family vault (closed 

since 1842) on 4th June following. With him the baronetcy expired, 

but the estates devolved on his eldest sister, who left five * daughters and 

coheirs, of whom Catharine, the eldest daughter, married Stephen 

Beckingham of Beckingham Place, Kent, who in 1752 purchased the 

shares of his sisters-in-law in the property. Their son, the Rev. Charles 

Beckingham of Bourne Park, left an only daughter and heiress, Louisa, 

who married in 1802, £dward Taylor of Bifrons, Kent (eldest brother 

of General Sir Herbert Taylor), and brought Bourne Park into that 

family, where it has continued till within the last few years.

As a contribution to East Anglian folk lore, I do not know whether 
the following has ever been chronicled. 

The tale goes that a certain Dr. Faustus (t Forster), who once on a 
time lived at Co)>dock Hall, had somehow bartered his soul away to the 
Evil One. When the time came for the fulfilment of the contract, he 
was said to have been dragged by his unholy creditor through a small 
wooden trap-door sort of opening in the wall of the upper floor over- 
looking the garden. He was carried off, and his brains dashed out 
against a tree in an adjoining paddock, between the house and the high 
r^eul to London. I am told that the spot was' still pointed out some 
half century ago. So far the legend. 

But the curious part of the story is, that a great aunt of mine 
(now buried in the adjacent churchjard), an active bustliug housewife, 
became tenant of the hall sometime previous to 1828, and being an 
economical soul, set to work to paper her bedroom herself In the 
course of her lal)ours she came on a hollow-sounding part of the wall, 
which proved to be a doorway carefully canvassed and papered up ; but 
she being burdened with no superstitious fears, the wall was soon opened 
and a large closet like chamber was disclosed, running the whole length 
of the bedroom, and quite empty save for a gridiron hanging on the 
wall. (I have heard that there was afterwards an amusing dispute with 
the previous tenant as to the possession of this valuable article.) On 
the matter being talked about in the village, some old people remembered 
that the Hall had been thought to be haunted formerly, and to have 
* Frances, third daughter, married Sir William Hardren, Bart., who n.s.p. without 
bein in 1764. His widow enjoyed the va&t inheritance of the Hardres family, and at 
her decease one of the fortunate sharers in the spoil of this exhausted race, was none 
other than the Baron de Montes-quieu, grandson of the great president. 

26 THE EAST anqlian; or, 

heard that the ghost was "laid" in the closet so carefully closed. 
Anyway it never appeared to resent its violated privacy and vex the good 
housewife, who converted the closet to the useful purpose of a box-room. 
It is diflScult to tell the origin of such a story, but there certainly 
was a family of Forsters in Queen Mary's reign seated at the Uall, 
whose arms were carved on the mantelpiece in the principal room, and 
are still to be seen (quartered with Foster) on the front of the gallery in 
the church. Foxe reports of the then Justice Forster, that he was very 
aealoua against those whom he regarded as heretics, being *^in. 
continuous hatred against the truth ; " the tale may, therefore, have 
arisen from his unpopularity in a very Protestant neighbourhood. The 
hall has been thoroughly modernized of late years, so probably this 
" haunted chamber " is like its ghost^ a thing of the past.

The " LiMBURY " Tumulus, near Litlington, Cahbs. — On a hill to 
the south of the village of Litlington, Cambs. there used to be a large 
tumulus called Limbury or Linloe Hill. A local tradition relates that 
from it Robin Hood shot an arrow which fell on the Ermine Street, near 
where the toll gate used to stand, about a mile and a half away, a spot 
now marked by an ancient hawthorn bush, and on the Ordnance map aa 
" Robin Hood." Having often seen this tumulus when travelling along 
the railway, I paid a visit to it about two years ago, and on arriving 
at the top of the hill was surprised to find that the tumulus had vanished, 
but in place of it about half an acre of the adjoining arable land was 
covered with chalk, bones, and broken pottery, evidently Roman. 
Amongst the bones I found a remarkable perfect epiphysis from the 
lower end of the femur of a deer. Coins of the reigns of Vespasian 
and Claudius have been found here, and about half a mile south near 
Ashwell Street, a Roman cemetery was discovered in 1821. Is an 
occupier, or owner of land, allowed to destroy ancient landmarks like 
this with impunity f

" Branbditch," or Brent Ditch. — There is an ancient bank running 
from Melboum Common in Cambridgeshire up to Heydon in Essex. It 
crosses the Icknield i^ay in its course, and is known locally by the name 
of Bran, Bren, or Brent ditch. It is mentioned in the Hundred Roll of 
Edward i. as the " Braneditch," being one of the boundaries of the 
" free warren " of Ralph de Pleys, Lord of Foulmere, and the name is 
frequently met with in deeds until the time of enclosure of the fields. 
The ditch has been obliterated by the plough, but the vallum on the n.e. 
side is still distinct. What is the probable' derivation of the name ?

Barrington Arms (Vol. v., n.s., p. 208). — The arms borne by Sir 
William de Barentine, sable three eagles displayed argent, were probably 
adopted by him on his marriage with Joan de Blaunchemoster, when he 
acquired a considerable estate in the county of Essex, which had formed 
part of the fee of the family of Limese, whose arms were gules three 
eaglets displayed or. But it is difficult to say, in the absence of docu- 
mentary evidence, whether this coat had previously been borne by the 
Blaunchemosters in consequence of a lineal descent from the family of 
Limese, or whether it was an instance of the tenant adopting the 
differenced coat of his feudal lord, a custom which was not unusual in 
the 13th century. 

The uncouth name of Blaunchemoster appears in a feoffment, temp, 
Henry iii, under the Latin form of de Albo Monasterio, showing that its 
owner derived his name from some white monastery, probably a house 
of the Cistercian order, whose brethren were known as the white monks 
from the colour of their habits.

Situated at the entrance to the picturesque village street, with its 
quaint plastered houses, Coddenham Church is a dignified-looking 
building, restored in a conservative manner about ten years ago, and 
containing chancel, battlemented derestoried nave and aisles, north 
porch and west tower. The oldest portion of the building is the Earlj 
English chancel, the nave originally decorated, but with clerestory and 
other additions of Perpendicular date. The chancel is at present 
nnrestored, and is ceiled, but the nave roof is a handsome double-hammer- 
beam one with sideposts carved into figures under canopies. The north 
aiale has also a roof of rich workmanship with carved bosses at the 
intersection of the principals, and the south aisle roof previously plain 
haa been renewed to harmonize with it. The figures have been mutilated, 
bat in this instance we may give Dowsing the benefit of the doubt, as he 
only mentions giving order to remove three crosses from the steeple and 
one from the chancel. One bay of the north aisle has been walled up to 
form an entrance to the tower and gallery (since removed). There are 
eight bells, two recently recast, the other six uniformly lettered — 

Thomas Lbstbr of London made us all, 1742. 
Suspended in the belfrey is a good brass chandelier, engraved — 
The Gift of Thiqodorb Ecclbstojt Esqb. in the Yeab 1740. 

The donor was for some time resident at Crowfield Hall and took a 
practical interest in the bells, his name heading a list of ringers hung in 
the belfry. 

A rich appearance is given to the exterior of the church by its 
battlemented clerestory with elaborate flint panelling and inlaid devices 
in stone. Towards the east end on north side is the request — 

tbntt 9 sTsir' $oYi% Srenrl^ tt ^vxfpntJx, 

An initial Jl on one of the buttresses may also refer to these. The 
monogram of the B.V. Maiy (the patron), three interlaced fishes (an 
emblem of the Holy Trinity), and other devices also appear. At the 
eastern clerestory gable is a plain sanotus-bell cot^ but the bell is gone. 
In the spandrels of the north porch doorway two weather-worn shields 
apparently bore the common Trinity symbol and the emblems of the 
Passion; blank shields are set round the hollow moulding of the 
doorway. The font is maasivCy octagonal, and plain. The pulpit is good 
Jacobean, and previous to the restoration was a pronounced '* 3-decker,'^ 
with sounding board, but has been lowered. The old carved pews of the 
same period have been re-used to form a dado round the aisles. There 
are two or three old carved benches and two ancient stalls with misereref 
in the chancel. At the east end of the south aisle the Shrubland pew 
has been suffered to remain, with its little private fireplace, and its panels 


carved with small representations of the Annunciation, Visits of 
Shepherds and Wise Men, Circumcision, Flight into Egypt, Baptism and 
the Temptation. In this pew there is a beautiful decorated trefoiled 
canopy over a piscina, having graceful leaf crockets and finial. 

The chancel is narrow and unusually long, approached from the 
nave by two pairs of broad steps, the Jacobean altar-rails formerly 
returned against the east wall at present doing duty as a chancel screen. 
Several panels Irom the old screen were for years degraded to a position 
below the seats in the chancel where the school children sat, and 
consequently suflfered greatly from ill-usage, but are now preserved at 
the vicarage awaiting a hoped-for restoration of the chancel. They 
contain figures of the turbaned prophets, each holding a scroll of his 
prophecy predictive of the Messiah; thus David has ** ^n*o bi«it air me 
filitt' mm' t% ttt"; Isaiah, *' ttcct bitga ronri^ft d jroet filiwa/' &c 
Two figures, presumably forming the outermost panels, are in the paned 
and slashed garments of Henry viii.'s time, and bear scrolls in their 
hands, one dated, ** gfj0»e Wt tmaa iniqmMti fretttka (1) ^*§* 1530/' 
The entrance to the loft staircase is on the north side behind the pulpit^ 
and is much above the present floor level. An oil painting of the 
" Ecce Homo " formed the altar-piece, furnished with a green curtain. 
On the south side is a piscina earlier and plainer than that in the aisle. 
There are a few small and inconsiderable remnants of old gla^s in the 
chancel windows. The hatchment of Royal Arms is of the reign of 
George i. In the vestry there is preserved a highly interesting little 
square panel of painted alabaster, discovered about 100 years ago in 
taking down an old house in the village. It is executed in high relief, 
and represents the Crucifixion. Three angels hold chalices to the 
wounds in hands and feet ; on the right hand of the Cross stand St. 
John, and bareheaded, Longinus with his spear, while below are the three 
Maries. On the other side are two helmeted soldiers and a third figure 
in cap (possibly the Centurion), with scroll in hand, — this interesting 
relic is now inserted over the mantelpiece. No pre-Reformation 
inscriptions remain, but a marble stone shows the indent of a smaU 
brass to a civilian in a long gown (c. 1470), with shield and group 
of children. On other stones were two small inscription plates. After 
these the next earliest monument is a polished black marble ledger in the 
chancel carved with Bacon, differenced by a mullet impaling ToUemache, 
and 14 other shields (Vide K A,, Vol. iv., p. 52). Above this on the north 
wall is a marble tablet surmounted by the emblazoned coat of Bacon 
differenced by a crescent, and quartering Quaplode (Vide E. A,, Vol. iv., 
pp. 50, 51, 104), for Capt. Nicholas Bacon who was slain in the memorable 
Sole Bay engagement ; a daughter of the brave Lord Sandwich who 
perished in the same fight j Lady Catherine Montague lies here with her 
two husbands, Nicholas Bacon and Rev. Balthazar Gardemau, com> 
memorated by an inscription on south wall of chancel {E. -4., Vol. iv., p. 51). 
Below is a shield, the colour much decayed — dexter side now blank. 


impaling Montague^ qrg. Montkermer. (Lady Catherine's first marriage 
is denoted >J[>y a small escutcheon over the vestry mantelpiece with Bacon, 
differenced by a crescent, impaling Montague), Another tablet in the 
same wall is to Nicholas Bacon, m.a., vicar 1796, and Anna Maria (Brown) 
his wife, 1785 {E, -4., Vol. iv., p. 51). The shield on this memorial is 
Bacon, crescent difference, quartering Quaplode ; impaling Gu. a chevron 
ermine between three bears' paws erect and erased arg.. Brown, 

The next vicar was the brother-in-law of the last-named, and has 
this inscription on a marble tablet in south wall : — 

In Memory of | the Rev. John Longe a.m.. Vicar of | Coddenham 
cum Crowfield 37 Years. | He was the eldest Son of | The late Rev. 
John Longe a.m.. Rector of | Spixworth in the County of Norfolk, | and

I She departed this Life | April 1»*- 1863 in her 90**^ year. | "Therefore

Above is a shield : Gu. a saltier engrailed or, on a chief of the 2nd 
3 crosslets of the field, Longe, bearing Brown in pretence, and impaling 
or on a bend engrailed sa., between 2 acorns erect proper, 3 fleur de lys 
of the field, Ward, The crest, a lion sejant gul., supporting between its 
paws a saltier as in the arms. (Mr. Longe's hatchment on the wall close 
by quarters Frere in addition to the above arms.) These bearings are 
repeated on an adjoining tablet, above inscription : — 

Sacred to the Memory of | Charlotte the beloved Wife of | The 
Rev^. John Longe, Vicar of this Parish, | who died May 21. 1812. | An. 
setat. 51. I Also of Francis Bacon, of TVinity College Cambpdge, | Their

the Cemetery of this Church. | "Blessed be the name of the Lord." 
Job. L^l. I 1 Thes. iv. 13, 14, 18. | 

The last inscription relative to this family is on north wall : — 

In the Loving Memory of | Margaret Douglas | Wife of Rev^. 
Bibbert Longe, | Vicar of this parish | who depart^ this life Sep^ 30^ 
1873, I the third daughter of the late | Rev^. Charles Davey Rector of

Also of the above | R«^^ Robert Longe | fifty five years vicar of

inhabitant of this parish, who died February 24*^ 1837 | aged 83 yeans. 

I "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth." | Also of

the faith. In peace with all men. The righteous shall be had in 
everlasting remembrance. | 

III. A window in north aisle has in glass : — 

To the glory of God, and in memory of Thomas and Susan Diggeos. 

The east window is not quite the most appropriate place for a 
display of heraldry, but that in the chancel is filled with shields of 
families connected with the parish. In the head is Longe bearing 
Browne on a scutcheon of pretence; impaling Ward. There are 18 
others {E. A,, Vol. iv., pp. 53, 134). 

Another window in north aisle displays more heraldic blazonry.

aisle a large marble ledger slab is inserted upright in the wall. Upon 
it are carved two shields connected by a ribbon, inscribed " The upright 
shall have dominion in the morning," and knotted about two pfdm 
branches. The dexter shield exhibits the Gillet arms, and upon the 
other is carved the name Devreux, in chief. The inscriptions runs : — 

To the blessed memory | of | Matthias Gillett | ats Candler,

M. Palmer. 



The notices of old painted glass in East Anglia would not be 
complete without some allusion to that in S. James' church, Bury S. 
Edmund's. It consists of a number of portions of incomplete subjects, 
which were brought together from different parts of the church, and 
coUected in a modem window at the east end of the chancel as it existed 
about 70 years ago, under the superintendence of the Rev. W. T. Image. 
When the chancel was rebuilt the altered size and character of the new 
east window made it necessary to find another place for the old glass, and 
it was ultimately fixed, without any alteration, in the first window to the 
west of the south aisle of the nave. The most prominent subject is the 
History of Susanna, which it may be remarked in passing, formed mther 
a singular object for the principal window in the church. This glass was 
considered by the late Mr. Powell, of Hardman and Co., whose recent 
death has deprived us of perhaps the first of draughtsuien in this branch 
of art, to be of Flemish execution and of the date of about 1480. The 
figures are large, and fill the lights from side to side without any border. 
The colouring is extremely rich, but the tone of the glass light and 
translucent. There is no notice of it in Davy's mss., in which reference 
is made to other parts of the glass, and it has occurred to me whether it 
was not brought from elsewhere when the window was made up by 
Mr. Image. There is no doubt that it is a very remarkable work, and 
the expression of the faces is not unworthy of Holbein, if the date would 
admit of it. Portions of the story appear in each of the three lower 
lights, the scene in the garden in the two first, and in the other the 
judgment of the elders. These two seated figures are in violet robes and 
have caps of the same colour on their heads, resembling in shape that 
in which Sir T. More is depicted by Holbein. These faces are inimitable, 
one utterly sensual and the other cynical. One elder marks off the 
reasoning on his fingers while the other holds a scroll. 

In the upper lights are several half figures of kings, placed on 
scrolls, and including Abia, Asa, Joram, and Manasses. The figures are 
on a background of cool blue and are encircled with comu-copias and 
ribands, chiefly of white glass. Davy mentions these as being then in 
two of the north windows, and also remarks David and Josaphat. 
These figures depict, as Mr. Westlake says in his book, the regal 
ancestry of the Blessed Virgin. They may possibly have formed part 
of a Jesse window. This glass is quite of a different character from 
that of the Susanna subject. Another fragment of ancient glass 
represents Ihe handles, and a portion of the blades of three swords, 
which have doubtless formed part of the seven swords often depicted as 
piercing the heart of the Blessed Virgin, in mystic allusion to her Seven 
Sorrows. There are several other curious fragments in the upper part 
of the window, including a kneeling angel with green wings, in a white 


alb and red stole crossed iu fronts probably part of the Annunciation. 
Also a bishop with a nimbus, in alb and red dalmatic, white chasuble 
and mitre. Another figure is that of that S. Catharine, crowned and 
holding a sword. A figure in a white robe lined with fur, and holding a 
lamb, is inscribed Joachym, and represents the father of the Blessed 
Virgin, the symbol alluding to the legendary rejection of his offering 
because he had " not begot issue in Israel." Finally, there are two little 
subjects compi*essed in the spandrils of the upper lights, spaces which 
in these days would probably be filled with mere foliage. In one is a 
figure in blue, kneeling by what may represent a stream of water, 
beyond which a pile of faggots appears from which a flame arises; 
while in the corresponding opening a figure in red appears to be striding 
over the water, if it be water, and tearing its hair, the pile of flaming 
faggots still appearing. It has been suggested that the subject may be 
the Sacrifice of Abel and the despair of Cain, but if this is not accepted, 
the allusion is to some legend, so far as I know, hitherto unexplained. 

Burp S. EdmuTuTs, B. B. 


In the Parish Register Return of 1831 the date of the earliest 
Register mentioned is 1734 — 1812. When I paid a visit to the church 
last summer, however, the vicar, the Rev. R. Hines, showed me a much 
older book which began about 1570. What remains of it is in excellent 
condition, but half of the right-hand column of entries is rotted away. 
A curious feature of the 18th Century Register, which was pointed out 
to me by the vicar, is the record in it of marriages celebrated at 
Cambridge. Thus during the incumbency of James Brown of Pembrook, 
1739 — 1749, there were several marriages of Shepreth people in 
Pembrook Chapel, which are duly record^ in the Shepreth Register. 
Also during the time of John Clarkson of St. John's, 1749-66, marriages 
took place in Peterhouse Chapel. [This college has land in the village]. 
In the earlier Register there are records of four marriages taking place 
at St. Edward's Church, Cambridge in 1720-1. The vicar has given me 
the following account of the fate of his parish records : — " A man named 
Sampson, since dead, used openly to state that his father, when parish 
clerk some 50 years ago, went into the church one evening and took out 
all the * parish papers ' and burnt them in the * Plough ' Inn in Shepreth. 
Hints were given that he was bribed to do this, but possibly tradition 

may have added to the truth of the matter The parish chest I 

found in a bam seven years ago ; from its appearance I had no doubt it 
originally belonged to the church, and obtained permission to remove it 
to the church where it now is."

No. III. 

Early in the 14th century flourished one of the most prominent 
membei-8 of the family, this was Henry de Staunton Aungier, a judge, 
who is described by Fobs as being " of a family of large possessions and 
ancient lineage," and by Fuller as flourishing "in great wealth and 
esteem." He was an ecclesiastic as well as a lawyer. As the latter, he 
is first mentioned in 1302. In April, 1306, he was called to the bench 
as a Judge of the Common Pleas, became in 1314 a Baron of the 
Exchequer, and Chancellor in June, 1316, though still employed in a 
judicial character. In 1323 raised to the ofiice of Chief Justice, and 
dying about the time of the king's deposition, was buried in St. 
Michaers Church, Cambridge, where his arms are still to be seeu, he 
was founder of Michael House, now incorporated with Trinity College, 
in the chapel of which his arms, " ermine a griffin saegrent azure," are 
painted upon the ceiling and under the archway of the college where 
they impale de Staunton. In 1348 Philip de Aungre, a cadet of this 
family, and Alice, his wife, gave 20 acres of land in Chelmsford and 
Bromfield to the Chantry of St. Mary le Thele, Herts. He was Lord 
of Ongars, Essex. After 1377 his heirs were also seated at Blakesware,"* 
"a fair seat in the parish of Ware." These manors continued in the 
hands of the Aungier family till the close of the 15th century, at which 
time, owing to vicissitudes and misfortunes incurred during the Wars of 
the Roses, in which they took the side of Lancaster, they found them- 
selves compelled to dispose of their estates and to disperse themselves. 

In 1483 Robert Aungier, "Esquire" (Rolls of Pari., 1 Henry vii.) 
together with the son and heir of the Duke of Buckingham, and other 
gentlemen, was attainted by Richard iii., and his estates confiscated, 
but upon the accession of Henry vii. the attainder was reversed, his 
lands restored, and many marks of favour extended towards him. On 
2nd Nov., 1485, he was created for life Constable of Tonbridge Castle, 
and " receiver of the castle and lordship, and of all manors, lordships, 
and lands appertaining to it." During the same year his brother 
Henry, was also granted for life the office of Bailiff* of Winchelsea, In 
the year 1500, John Aungier, " gentleman " f^ZTfra/rf*' Visitation X son 
of the first-named, possessed an estate at Coton, three miles from 
Cambridge. His will is dated January, 1538, and proved by his wife 
and executrix, on 7th February of same year, buried in Hagboume 
Church, Berks., where there is a monumental l}rass to ''John Angeur 
and Alys his wife." Two of his brothers, described in the Vintations 
as esquires and gentlemen, found their way into Yorkshire, where they 
left descendants. 

The above mentioned John Auugier also inhabited a mansion in 
Cambridge, on the spot now called "Aunger's Lane." He left six 
daughters (to Eleanor, second daughter, he left lands at Hagbourn) and 
• Sahnon's Herts. (1728). Almond's Irith Pteragt (1768), article ** Coleraine." 


one 80D, Richard, described in an ancient deed as being "lineally 
descended of the ancient house of the Aungers' of Essex." By his wife, 
Anna, daughter of Edward Coton of Trompington, Essex, ** Esquire,'' 
he left among other issue * a son and heir, John of Coton, fisquire, who 
by -his will dated June 20th, 1560, and proved 20th February, 1550-1, 
desires to be buried in Coton church. He married Eleanor, daughter 
and coheir of John Bacon, gentleman, of Norfolk, who brought the Bacon 
arms : — Gules a boar passant or armed and langued azure as a quartering 
into the family. This quartered shield forms the arms of the county and 
town of Longford. Her sister, Margaret, the subject of one of Holbeins' 
best portraits, was one of the Princess Mary's gentlewomen, and married 
the celebrated Sir William Butts, immortalised by Shakespeare. 

He left according to will, Richard, his heir and sole executor, and 
Margaret (the wife of Sir William Heybom, Knight), to whom he leaves 
JB4 in money. 

Richard Aungier, Esquire and j.p., a celebrated member of legal 
profession, was bom circa 1528 ; matric. May, 1545 ; Fellow of Trinity, 
19th December, 1546 ; b.a. 1547. In 1551 admitted member of Grays' 
Inn, afterwards called to Bar. One of the counsel at law for county 
and town of Cambridge. ' Autumn Reader and three times Treasurer of 
Grays' Inn, murdered in his house in the Inn, November, 1597, and his 
body subsequently found floating in the Thames, ** he having been myssed 
almost a moneth." Stow records how, on January 25th, 1598, one was 
hanged at " Tibome " for wilfully and secretly murdering an " auncient 
gentleman " and counsellor of '* Graies " Inn, in his Chamber there. 

By Will dated 22nd January, 1597, and proved 15th April, 1600, 
by Rose, his widow, and Francis, eldest son, executors. He directs that 
his body be buried in the south aisle and comer of Trinity Church, 
Cambs., or in Church of St. Andrew's, Holbom. Mr. Aungier was a 
benefactor to Corpus Christi College, where his arms may still be seen 
in bay window of dining hall. He left issue by his wife Rose, dan. of 
William Stewart of Cambs., niece of Sir Mark, and cousin of Sir Thomas 
Stewart, High Sheriff of Cambs., 12 children:— 

1. Sir Francis Aungier of East Clandon, Surrey.

one of the most distinguished of Lancashire Nonconformists (for account of whom 
vide Dictionary of National Biographpt edited by Leslie Stephen, Vol. i.), though he 
testified against execution of Charles i., and mused to sign the engagement to be 
true to the Commonwealth. His second wife was Margaret, daughter of Oswald 
Mosley of Ancoats, whose family were of great local consideration, anoheld the lordBhip

A large portion of the glass formerly in this church has been 
destroyed ; what remams is mostly of the decorated period. In the east 
window of the south aisle there are beautiful floriated coats of arms 
connected with the Aspal, Cornard, Grey, Mollington, Pakenham, and other 
families. The borders of the quatrefoils in which the shields are contained, 
are richly worked. In the small tracery of this window there are repre- 
sentations of most singular nondescript birds and animals. One has 
the head of a bird, and on the body an ugly bearded face ; another has 
the head of a lamb and two ugly faces about its body, with the feet of 
an ox ; a third has the head of a bird with a cap upon its head, while 
on the body appears the head of a fierce lion ; another is a winged lion 
of extremely fierce mien, from the head of which is a long necked fierce 


dog. The next is in the form of a boar with long ears and a fierce 

expression, and from the head is a long-necked animal with the bead 

something like a dog wearing a cap. The other is somewhat different, 

having the body and wings of a bird, the feet of a lion, the head of 

some fierce animal, and the tail of a dragon. The seventh and last, has 

the body of a lion, at the extremety of whose tail is a dragon's head, 

and at the end of a long neck is the head of a serpent. The back 

ground is painted dark with small white rings. 

Tn a window in the north aisle, looking west, is the beautiful 

representation of the "Rod of Jesse," on a ruby ground. In the 

clerestory window is painted the Tudor Rose, stalked and leaved, of a 

much later date.

[During the restoration of the church there waa discovered in the rood loft 
stairease the supposed head and extremities of the founder, Aspal, whose mutilated 
recumbent effigv under a low canopy, is on the north side of the altar. On his jupon 
are the arms of Aspal floriated. In the churchyard and in the main road way, were 
discovered the statues which formerly graced the south parapet, i.e. : Moses with the 
tables of the law, St. Matthew with a money baff, St. John Baptist with lamb, St. 
Paul with sword, tog^ether with the fragments of a beautiful crucmx, with representa- 
tions of the Virgin and Child. There were many other interesting fragments in this 
church, such as corbels, &c.]

Many earthworks in agricultural districts are, since the enclosure of 
the fields, gradually disappearing. Banks which were notable landmarks 
50 years ago are now scarcely disceniable unless pointed out. In these 
cases I have found the character of the vegetation growing on them a 
useful guide For instance Beldam ( ArchcBological Journal Vol. xxv.^ 
describes a Roman camp by the Portway at Melbourn. I searched in 
vain for traces of this until, my attention l>eing attracted by an old furze 
bush, which is now very rare in these parts, growing on a hedgebank by 
the roadside, I examined the grass and found it consisted largely of 
Festvca ovina. Then on getting on to the other side of the thick 
hawthorn hedge it was possible, with a little imagination, to make out 
two sides of a camp in the adjoining orchard and meadow, one of which 
ended at the hedgebank where the furze bush grew. The Bran ditch 
and the old track of the Ickneild way show a more characteristic flora 
still. On the former I have noticed Helianthemum vulgare^ Cerastium 
arvense, Nepeta Catrana, Sptrcea, Filipendula, FUago germanicay Cardutu 
eriopharuSy Car Una vulgaris, Bronvm erectm, Kceleria CrUtata, Avtna 
pratensis, and many others which are to be found nowhere else in the 
neighbourhood, except it be on Melbourn Common or " Black Peak," as 
it is called locally, which lies at the n.w. end of the ditch. This is a 
most delectable spot for a botanist to explore — Parnassia palustris, 
Cladium marUcuSy and other pleasant surprises will reward him.

Tardt Introduction op Side Saddles into West Suffolk. — I have 
some recollection of having seen it stated that when the side saddle was 
introduced into England in the reign of Richard ii., the ladies of Bury 
St. Edmund's and its neighbourhood were the last to adopt it I should 
be glad to know if I am correct.

The Confliot between Saxons and Danes at Assinqton, Co. 
Suffolk.— In W. White's Topography of 1844, it is stated that "The 
Church of St Edmund was built by Canute the Great, on the site of 
the last battle fought between the Saxons and the Danes, in which 
the latter were the victors. The Hall, which stands near it, was raised 
originally as a religious house, in which priests prayed for the souls of 
the slain." Is anything known of the circumstances under which this 
event took place 1

Heckpord, Hackford, etc. (p. 14). — The following extract from 
Norris' Church Notes^ Vol. i. pp, 593, et steq,, may be of use to Mr. 
Heckford : — 

" Sir William de Hakeford, Kt, au eminent soldier in the Scotch 
warrs, was Lord of this Mannor, and in the year 1278 he settled this 
manor and advowson and diverse others on Balph de Hackford, parson 
of this place, in trust for his two daughters and heirs, of whom Joan, 
the eldest, married Sr John de Sejckford, Kt. ; and Elizabeth, the 
younger, married Hehry de Elmham." BlomJUld, Vol. i., p. 201, in 
which place we have the pedigree of this family as follows : — 

Sir William de Hackford, Kt, who bore for his arms cheoq. or and 
vert, had issue Sir Thomas de Hakeford, who by his wife Marona who 
died Ao. 1273, had issue Peter, a younger son of Sir Nicholas de 
Hakeford, who had a wife named Margery, but whether any issue he 
says not, to him succeeded Sr. Wm. de Hakeford beforenamed, who by 
Margery his wife had. two daughters and heirs before mentioned. Other 
persons of this family whom I have elsewhere met with are, the Lady 
Margaret de Hakeford, coheiress of Carhow in the 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 
and 19th of Edw. in. Rot. Carh: Richard de Hackford, who was 
Steward of the Courts belonging to Carhow. I find mention of him in 
diverse Rolls from the 2nd to the 17th Ed. ii. It is likely he was father 
to Margaret.

business of shipping, the persons here-under named together with above 
100 more of the inhabitants of Melborne (whereof the collectors of 
Ship money for that town were present) upon . Friday the twelfth of 
June instant did greviously wound <b beat five or six of the sheriff's

others have since used many threatening speeches towards them, 
insomuch as they dare not go about that nor any other service, for his 

Also he finds such opposition in divers other parts of the county, 
that albeit he hath done, & still is ready to do his utmost endeavour to 
performe the service, yet he shall not be able to go through with it, 
unless some speedy course be taken by your Lordships for the suppress-

Giles Josselyn one of the chief inhabitants of Babraham using

the same, whereby the same is still unpaid. 

Also the petty constables & inhabitants of the several towns in the 
paper hereunto annexed mentioned doe refuse to make any rates whereby 
the service is very much delayed, albeit they have had many several

day of June last, k as they came homeward they called at Melbome, h 
demanded of the collectors Edmond Wood <k John Pettitt the ship 
money, who answered they had some of the poor men's money, but the 
rich men had not paid nor they could not get them to pay it. Where- 
upon the bailiffs demanded of the said collectors the rates for the Ship 
money, & they would see if they could make them to pay it, but the 
collectors refused to show them the rates, & did hinder them in per- 
forming the King's service at that time, whereupon the said bailiff by 
virtue of a warrant of the high sheriff, attached the bodies of the said 
collectors to have brought them before the High Sheriff, & instantly 
thereupon John Neale, Benjamin Medcalfe, Leonard Evens, Edmond 
Jefferson, Roger Andrews, Nathaniel Andrews, John Thurgood, John 
Hitch brother of William Hitch,* & William French the elder, with the

against the said bailiffs, who sought for the constables k desired their 
aid to keep the peace which was denied, <fe ill words given & an assault 
threatened k then the said bailiffs & sheriff's men fearing some hurt 
would be done, made a proclamation that all should depart only the

The condition of some of these turbulent villagers may be gathered 
from the rate at which they were assessed in the Subsidy of 1640. 
Thus, John Petti t, goods, £3, John Thurgood lands 50*, John Neale, 
Leonard Evens, Ed. Jefferson, John Hitch each lands 20«, Thurgood 
also had refused to pay his assessment of 25^ to the forced loan of 1627, 
but contributed 50^ to the Scotch loan in 1645. Neale had refused 
30» in 1627. Pettit contributed 26«. 8^. <k William Wood 30» to the 
Scotch loan. Benjamin Medcalfe was churchwarden when Dowsing 
" purified " the church. He was an anabaptist. His son started the 
Baptist meeting house, which still continues. The only gentleman in 
the village was Mr. James Ayloffe, who held the Bury manor on lease.

her being granduiece and heiress of the U\st Earls, and so raised her to 
the style and dignity of Countess of the county of Longford in her own 
right, with remainder to heirs male of her body. She obt. 1794, and 
was succeeded by her grandson, Thomas, father of the two succeeding 
Earls, and grandfather of the present peer.

The Pleasant History of the Kino and Lord Biood op Bunoat 
(Vol, IV., p. 383). 

Neither this query, nor another to the same effect in Note$ and 
Queries, hnye brought me any reply throwing light on the question of 
the date and authorship of this ballad, but I have received from Mr. 
W. B. Gerish, some vali^able notes on the other points of my query 
(" Bramfield Oak," " Haj^esworth Cross," etc.), with his permission to 
publish them in The JlaU Anglian, of which I hope to avail m^'self 
after further research as to the still existing difficulties. In the hope 
of getting these difficulties cleared up, I send the following notes, (1) as 
to the refrain or burden, (2) as to the ballad itself. 

As to the refrain. As far as is known it cannot be traced further 
back than to the first edition of Holinshed's Chronicles, publised in 1577. 
It is found in that part of the work contributed by William Hanison 
(1534_1593), and entitled, "The Description of Britaine." The second 
edition, considerably enlarged, appeared in 1587. The first edition, 
with the additions to the second arranged in square brackets, was 
edited by Dr. Furnivall, in 1877, for the New Shakspere Society. I 
have made the following extracts from original copies of these two 

(I.) "As for those tales that go of Beston Castell ; how it shall 
sHue England on a day, & likewise the brag of a rebellious Barron in 
olde time that sayde in contempt (of King Henry the thirde, as I gesse) 

If I were in my Castell of Bungey 

Vpon the water of Waueney, 
I woulde not set a button by the King of Cockney,* 

I reput€ them but as toyes, the first meere vaine, the seconde 
vttered if any such thing were sayde, as many other wordes are and 
haue beene spoken of lyke holdes (as Wallingforde, &c.), but no we 
growen out of memorie, and with small losse not hearde of among the 
common sort" (Edit, of 1577, Vol. l, p. 83). "The Seconde Booke of 
the description of Britaine," chap. 8 ("Of Castelles and holds"). 

• See "Cockney" in Murray's New Engl. Diet,, Vol. IL, 1893, p. 676, where thin 
panage, from Dr. Fumivars edition, is quoted. 


(II.) " Ab for those tales that go of Beaton Castell, how it shall 
saue all England on a dale, and likewise the brag of a rebellious baron 
in old time named Hugh Bigot, that said in contempt of King Henry 
the third, and about the fiftith jeare of his reigne [Oct. 1265 — Oct. 
1266] :— 

If I were in my castell of Bungeie, 

Vpon the water of Waueneie, 

I wold not set a button by the King of Cockneie, 

I repute them but as toies, the first meere vaine, the second fondlie vttered 
if anie such thing were said, as manie other words are and haue b^ene 
spoken of like holds (as Wallingford, &,c.) but now growen out of 
memorie, and with small losse not heard of among the common sort. 
Certes the castell of Bungeie was ouerthrowen by the aforesaid prince, 
the same yeare that he ouerthrew the walles and castels of Treske and 
Malesar, apperteining to Roger Mowbraie, and that of Fremlingham 
belonging likewise to Hugh Bigot, whereof in the chronologic following 
you may read at large." — Edit, of 1587, p. 195; Book ii., chap. 14 
("Of Castels and holds"). 

Comparing these two extracts, we notice that in 1577, Harrison 
calls the chief figures ** a rebellious Barron," and, " as I gesse," Henry iii. ; 
but by 1587 the former is become Hugh Bigot, and not only is the 
particular king named unconjecturally, but an approximate year of his 
reign is added for the occurrence of the event which gave rise to the 
baron's brag. We do not know whence Harrison obtained the lines which 
he has introduced into his Description, He may have learnt them from 
oral tradition in SuflFolk, or they may have been handed down by the 
descendants of the Bigods, one of whom. Sir Francis Bigod of Lettring- 
ton and Mulgrave Castle, Yorkshire, descended from John Bigod, 
brother of the fifth Earl of Norfolk of that name, died in 1537, three 
years after Harrison was bom. When Harrison inserted them into his 
work he remembered that Henry iii. had besieged Bungay Castle, and 
so he placed that king's name conjecturally in brackets. When he was 
preparing the second edition, ten years later, he remembered that the 
Bigods had held Bungay from the days of William i. till the death of 
the fifth earl in 1306, so he added the rebellious baron's name; and he 
also added his reason for assigning the brag to Henry iii.'s reign, 
namely, that Bungay and Framlingham Castles had been overthrovra 
about 1265>6. But if this was the date he has got the baron's 
christian name wrong, for in 1265-6 Eoger Bigod was Earl of Norfolk, 
whom, however, Harrison may have confused with brother, Hugh Bigod, 
the justiciar, who died about Nov., 1266. Henry iii.'s reign was 
contemporary with Roger, the second earl, who succeeded his father, 
Hugh the firet earl, in either 1176 or 1177, and died in 1221 ; with 
Hugh the third earl who died early in 1 225 ; with Roger the fourth 
earl who died in 1270 ; and with Roger the fifth and last earl, who died 

II Dec., 1306, having, in 1301, made the king his heir. (See for dates,

Harrison fixed upon a certain king, and so gave a proximate date 
to the lines, becatise he found that Bungay Castle had been besieged during 
that king^s reign ; but he forgot that in those stormy days it had 
sustained siege by no means only once. For over 200 years the Bigod's 
were one of the most powerful families in the kingdom, always foremost 
in all struggles of the time, and often threatening the throne itaelf. 
There was no waste of sentiment in their politics, what they did they 
did for themselves, joining now one party, now the other, as the scales 
of fortune alternated, and, when they found themselves really beaten, 
they made the best terms they could, and hopefully waited for the next 
rebellion which might bring theni a chance of dictating terms. The 
following extract narrates, perhaps only a few of the seiges which 
Bungay Castle sustained. 

Bungay "was gnuited with 116 other manors, by William the 
Conqueror, to Roger Bigod, who (whose son Hugh) was afterwards 
created Earl of Norfolk, and is supposed to have built Bungay Castle, 
which, from its commanding situation, on a bold eminence overlooking 
the river Waveney, and the great strength of its fortifications, was 
boasted of by Hugh, the next Earl, as being impregnable ; but hi 1140 
it was stormed and taken by King Stephen, though the refractory earl 
had said, * Where (were) I in my Castle of Bungay^ upon the xoaters of 
Waveney, I ivould not set a button by the King of Cockney.* It was, 
however, soon afterwards restored to the earl, who wi\s obliged to 
surrender it to Henry n., in 1155, but had it restored to him again in 
1 163. This earl, as noticed at pp. 51, 188, and 622, espoused the cause 
of the rel)elliou8 sons of Henry ii., in 1 1 73 ; and his castles at Ipswich, 
Framlingham, and Walton, being taken by the king's forces, he 
purchased the royal pardon by humble submission, and a fine of one 
thousand marks. His castle at Bungay (as well as his other strong- 
holds), w^as demolished by order of the king, and on its site was erected 
a mansion, which, in the 22nd of Edward i., Roger Bigod, (fifth) Earl 
of Norfolk, and Earl Marshall of England, obtained permission to 
embattle."— W. White's Sufolk, first edit. (1844), p. 426-7. 

Of courae the lines refer to BungAy Castle, and no doubt they were 
uttered by one of the Bigods, for we read of no incident in its history 
after it had passed from the hands of this family in 1306 to which they 
could refer, whereas, whilst they held it we read of repeated sieges. 
Having sliown that as far as is known it cannot be traced further back 
tlien to Harrison's Description (1577), and that he assigns the brag, and 
then only conjectu rally, to Henry in.'s reign, it only remains to say 
that its date is really quite uncertain — it may belong to any one of the 
warlike struggles that took place between the death of Henry i. and 
the succession of Edward l Many writers, since the days of Harrison, 
have quoted it, generally with sliglit alterations (especially in the last 
line), and have assigned it to different reigns, and some writers on our 
language and literature, apparently taking it for granted that it is come 


down to US in its original form, and accepting, without troubling them- 
selves as to its origin, any date which any other writer may have chosen 
to guess at, have used it as an early example of English versus Anglo- 
French. It is not impossible that it may yet be found in some manu- 
script, or even in some printed work, earlier than Harrison's first edition. 
It would be very interesting to know if it is still remembered by the 
East Anglian peasantry, but one must not forget that it may have been 
long since forgotten, but have again crept into local orsil tradition 
through some printed source. 

Secondly, as to the ballad. I cannot find it in any work earlier 
than Ford's Suffolk Garland, 1818, pp. 137-9. It has been reprinted in 
Q\yAe*% Nno Suffolk Garland, 1866, pp. 214-6, and, I believe, in other 
books. In The Suffolk Garland, 1818, an interesting account of the 
Bigod family is prefixed, but the writer, lacking the results which later 
years of careful research, especially as regards chronology, have yielded 
us, confuses the different Rogei-s and Hughs,* and tells us that Hugh, 
the first earl, " invariably espoused the cause of Stephen," whereas he 
forsook Stephen, who had made him Earl of Norfolk (because he had 
sworn that Henry i. had disinherited his daughter), and joined for a 
time .the party of the Empress Maud, and was, as we have already seen, 
besieged in 1 140 in his castle of Bun«;ay. The writer assigns the brag to 
Hugh, the first earl {cr, 1135, d. 1176 7). And he makes Hugh, the 
third earl (s. 1221, d. early in 1225), the subject of the ballad, but this 
is impossible, for this Hugh lived to enjoy his title only four years, which 
were of King Jnhn*^ reign, whereas the ballad speaks of King Henry — 
"*Say you to Lord Hew of Nofolk,' 
Said Henry, our English King.'' 
— Now the only King Henry and Earl Hugh that were contemporary 
were Henry ii. and the first earl, whom probably the author of the 
Iwllad meant to be the chief figures in his story. Perhaps the author 
and the writer of the preface are different peraons. The question still 
remains, who did write the ballad 1 It is a good racy song (to the tune 
of " Dunwich Roses "), of which no one need have been ashamed. That 
gnmd old Scotch ballad, "Hardy Knute," which Sir Walter Scott 
committed to memory before he could read, at his grandfather's farm- 
house of Sandy-Knowl, and which he never forgot, was long believed to 
be ancient, until a lady confessed herself the author. 

What place is alluded to in the second line ? — 

" The King hath sent for Bigod bold. 
In Essex w'hereat he lay." 

It is recorded in Domesday-Book that Roger Bigod, father of the 
first earl, held six lordships in Essex.

Baptizing on Good Friday. — A writer in the current number of 
the Magazine of Art alludes to a prevalent custom in many country 
parishes, particularly in Ea$t Anglia^ of baptizing such infants on Gfpod 
Friday as had been born since the previous Good Friday. The question 
is asked, without it seems to me any show of reason, whether this may 
not be regarded as a remnant of the old Church rite of hallowing the 
Font on Easter Eve. I have never observed this peculiarity in the entries 
of the Parish Register of Baptisms, neither can I imagine such a custom 
ever to have had a foothold. At all events I have never before heard 
of such a practice, and should be glad to learn something as to the 
prevalence, or otherwise of this peculiar custom. It can surely only be 
defended on the ground " the better the day, the better the deed."

Thomas Fothergill, b.d., Master and Fellow op St. John's 
College, Cambridge. — Mr. Fothergill, according to Newcourt, presented 
to Thorington Rectory, Essex, in 1643, and the same authority says 
that on his death in 1661 Thomas Tirwhitt was presented. From an 
indenture the Will of Fothergill was dated 24th October, 1675, and ho 
is mentioned in the St. John's Admissions in 1674, so it is clear there 
must have been some Rector between. Search has been made for his 
Will in every likely Court of Probate, but no trace of it can be found. 
A member of this family states that he has seen a monument to this 
worthy in Essex. I shall be much obliged if any of your readers can 
say in what Church it is.

A Contribution to Looal Etymology. Part I. — Introduction. 

A glance at the Ordnance map reveals what^ at first sight, might 
be taken for a confused mass of names of places, having a strange and 
puzzling composition ; but a closer inspection teaches us that they are 
not so meaningless as we at first supposed, and that there is a striking 
similarity in some instances between several names, in others a distinctive 

The names afford us a valuable lesson in the history and tradition 
of this part of the country, and it is possible that some of the local 
appellations which appear absurd and unintelligible may turn out to be 
most interesting and instructive. 

We learn finom the local names that three races of men have been 
open the soil hereabouts, before the time when our histories give us precise 
information as to the people, their manners, customs, and peculiarities. 

Much is surmised regarding the earlier races of Britain, and a great 
deal of it may be true ; but history does not throw much light upon the 
state of this country till just before the Norman Conquest. 

It is manifest, therefore, that where we have little else left to us of 
oar fiEir-distant ancestors, the interpretation of their names of things and 
places is a study which cannot be pureucd without advantage, 
historically, archseologically, and ethnologically. 

The study of local etymology, then, becomes especially interesting 
as bringing to light, by means of the hints conveyed in the composition 
of a word, many a link connecting us with a long forgotten and past 

We have an instance of history repeating itself in the colonization 
of North America. Emigrant settlers first established themselves on 
the sea coast, then they gradually spread over the fertile lands, cleared 
the forests, avoided the swamps, calling their homesteads after their 
own names or native places, while the aborigines were driven step by 
step into the hills and distant fastnesses of the country, the wilds which 
sheltered them retaining their original names. Such a change is exactly 
what took place in our own country, when wave after wave of a restless 
surplus population, from the inhospitable regions of Northern Europe, 
dashed upon our shores. 

Boughly speaking it will be found that most rivers and mountains 
bear Celtic names, cultivated districts Danish or Saxon, sea-board places 
Norse, and important posts or central points Roman-British or Norman. 
While, as a rule, all local names of British origin are descriptive, those 
of the Norsemen and Saxons are seldom so, but more generally imply 
possession on the part of one whose patronymic clings to it still. 

It must be remembered that the Anglo-Saxons (so-called) styled all 
the natives of Scandinavia " Danes, '^ because the phrase Donsk tunga 
(the Danish tongue) is the earliest recorded name of the common Scan- 


66 THB BAST anquan; or, 

dinavian language. The term " Danish " of the old Saga times applies, 
not to the nation but to the empire ; hence a Dane became in England 
synonymous with a Scandinavian. 

In the 13th century the name Norroena (Norse tongue) began to be 
used and this term will be found most convenient, to avoid confusion. 

The Icelandic language affords the greatest assistance in unravelling 
the tangled skein of our local etymology, which, in spite of the influence 
of the Saxon and the Norman, has kept wonderjfiilly close to its original 

It would seem as if the fierce Norwegian sea rovers, after taking 
and holding the best landing places on the coast, brought over the more 
peaceful inhabitants of the neighbouring countries of Sweden and 
Denmark, who were accustomed to agricultural pursuits and caused them 
to occupy the districts inland and bring them into cultivation. Thus it 
is that many villages have names more common to Sweden and Denmark 
than to Norway. 

The Danelagh or district of the Danish speaking people, by agree- 
ment between Alfred and Guthrum, renewed by Edmund and Anlaf in 
941, was divided from the Saxon kingdom by a line passing along the 
Thames, the Lea and the Ouse, and then following the course of Watling 
Street (the Boman road which runs in a straight line from London) by 
Stony Stratford to Chester. 

For a long time the two languages would exist side by side, bat 
ultimately and especially when the two nations were united under one 
king, they would insensibly dovetail into each other. Many modem 
English words show early northern influence, and even in Anglo-Saxon 
times the language was so blended with Scandinavian words that there 
were often double expressions for the same thing. 

No one can say with authority what the Anglo-Saxon language 
really was in its eariiest stage, what it afterwards became when a great 
infusion of the Danish tongue was thrown into it, and what it was as it 
degenerated into semi-Saxon after the Conquest* 

The Frisian dialect of the low German gives the best idea of the 
original so-culled Anglo-Saxon, for it is the modem representative of the 
language of old Dutch Friesland, whence so many of those who settled 
in England (after the departure of the Romans) came. This is borne 
out by the fact that the early English missionaries (notably, St. Bonifiaoe) 
made their way there, because it was the country of their fathers and 
there was no more difficulty with the language tiban there would be in 
the case of a citizen of the United States visiting Britain. 

In attempting to interpret these names it is not safe to trust to 
their modem spelling. Like the water worn pebbles o( a gravel bed, 
they have undergone the friction of centuries, when men spelled as thej 
listed and corrupted their speech by the same rule. 

The earliest record of them is in Domesday Book, which takes us 
♦Taylor's "Words and Places.** 


back 800 jean nearer to the time when they were given. That they 
differ considerably from the names of towns and villages ocoapying the 
lame localities at the present time cannot be denied, and this has been 
pat down to the inability of the Norman surveyors to catch the exact 
•ound of a language with which they were not familiar and their attempt 
to represent phonetically in the eccentric orthography of the period the 
same on paper. A little reflection will, however, show that this conclusion 
is not quite in accordance with the facts. The Domesday Survey was 
made by order of William the Conqueror, a.d. 1086 ; that is to say, 
twenty years after his invasion of England. The land had been therefore, 
finr the most part^ parcelled out and divided among his followers, who 
had again distributed portions to their vassals and retainers. 

It is difficult to say whether the original holders under King Edward 
the Confessor and his nobles had been displaced, or any of them had been 
permitted to retain a portion of their lands ; but a perusal of the ancient 
record does not reveal the existence of any persons residing upon farms 
or settlements bearing the same name from which they were derived. 

The Scandinavian settlers and their descendants must therefore have 
passed away, or at any rate out of possession, some of them perhaps, 
into the obscurity of the nameless villains, socmen and servitors 
mentioned in the survey. 

So long a residence in the country would have familiarized the 
intruders with the language and local names, so that the apparent 
difficulty of catching the pronunciation does not hold. Besides, for 
the execution of the survey, Commissioners, called King's Justiciaries 
(Legati Jtegu)^ were appointed to go into each county, and every pains 
were taken to collect precise information on oath from the sheriffis, the 
lords of each manor, the presbyters of every church, the reeves of every 
hundred, the baili£Bs and six vUleins of every village, as to the name of 
every place, its history, description, and belongings. 

So searching was this survey that in the Midland counties the 
minutest particulars are recorded, and the names of places are very 
clearly set down. 

We are forced to admit, with this evidence before us, that the 
local names in Domesday Book are more likely to be correct than those 
of our day; and the difference between them, which is so perplexing, is 
the result of a corrupt pronunciation developed through many 
generations. It is obvious that, to get a correct derivation, the original 
word, as found in Domesday Book, must be analysed, and not relegated 
to the shades because of the supposed stupidity of the transcriber of the 
reports of the Commissioners, or of the latters' uncertain foreign ears. 

Further, it was a characteristic of all Teutonic races to give their 
names to their abodes or possessions, therefore, in attempting to unlock 
the derivation of these local names, preference has been given to a 
personal name when it forms the prefix or enters into the composition of 
the word. 


It vfiW be reoibered that according to Grimm's law, p is interchange- 
able with b and // g with k and h; t with d and th. Also, that in the 
old Norse k k sounds like nk, j like y, the vowels are pronounced in a 
modified form of the continental fashion, and the k is always aspirated. 
There are two sounds of the th, as in English like thin and thine. In 
the north the letters ch had the hard sound of Jl as in kirk, whereas in 
the south they seemed to have been softened as in church. In Domes- 
day Book u, V and w are interchangable.

aardr. It is peculiar to East Norway, very common as the second compound of Danish 


Nig«H .... 

for one i>lough ; it is waste ; there are eight acres of meadow ; in the time of King 

Edward it was worth fifteen shillings." Under Leicestershire (land of William 

Bvenvaalet), ** William Bvenvaslet holds two caracutes of land in Bavenstorp ; it was 

waste, and is so." Ravenstone still stands in both counties, but the distinction 

" thorp *' is lost. The homstead of Cedric, formerly the enclosed farm of Raefn, the 

Norseman, alone gives the name to the place. 

- Thwaite ; N. pynt a forest clearing; D. Ivede; A.S. thirtan, Chaucer, thvite, to 
chop. It seems originally to have been used of an outlying cottage with its surround- 
inff field. 

Toft ; K. tope, tompt, toft, tuft; A.S. toft, identical with the English word tufl, a 
green tuft or knoll, a piece of ground, homestead. 

Ton; N. tun; A.S. t<in ; G. zaun; properly a hedge, from G. zauen {taowen) ; 
A.S. tsman, to hedge. At first a hedged or fenced plot, enclosnire within which a 
boose is built : then the farmhouse with its buildings ; and afterwards a collection of 
huts round the ton of a chief as in Ravenstone, the town of Raefn. This 
termination is often misleading, as many people imagine that the old spelling, " stone," 
means stone, whereas the presence of the " s " marks the possessive case common to 
all Teutonic languages. 

Well ; N. vellir ; fields, from voUr, 
^ Wick; A.S. wic ; F. loik; from the Latin vicu$; a village or town. Nothing 
akin to the Norse vik, a bay, as found in the names on the coast. 

With ; N. vidr; D. ved ; S. vcttd; A.S. vmdu ; wood, a tree, a wood, forest of 

Wold ; A.S. looM, weald ; G. wald, a forest. 

Worth ; N. jSrd ; A.S. vforth, yrth ; O. Fris. wirde, wurth, vmrd ; D.B. uurde or 
vtrde. Land, especially upland, sloping from water or march, an estate. 

It is well to note that toick, ford, stock, and ing occur in both the 

Norae and Saxon, but with different meanings. In Norse they mean 

a bay, an arm of the sea, a log of wood, and a family name. In Saxon 

(Frisian) a settlement, a road or a river crossing, a stake, and a clan. 

Where the word "ford" occurs and there is no road or river, it is 

probably intended for the wrde of Domesday Book, t.e., uforth, 

n. Barbbr, m.d. 

(To be continued,) 



This Church is named in honour of the B.V. Mary, and is situated 

about half a mile to the right of the road from Ipswich to Norwich. 

It appears now to be but seldom used, and the graveyard has a neglected 

look. The building is very plain, comprising Early English chancel^ 


Decorated nave and south-west tower, and a south chapel or aisle of 
brick, of apparently 17th century. In the north wall there is a litti& 
Norman window with shafts in the jambs. One bell hangs in the tower, 
thus lettered — 


The oldest monumental record is a brass plate upon a stone just inside 
the south door, inscribed in Gothic letters — 

Orate p aia Sysilie Jow qudda | vx'is Petri Jow cui' aie ppiciet* De\ | 

The last letter in the surname is curiously written, but is given as above- 
by Haines' Mantial, though marked with a 7 . With not uncommon 
thrift the stone has since been utilized for a later interment, and haa 
the following (now much worn) on its lower part : — 

Here lyeth the | body of An Pal | ent (9) maid, buried | the 6 of 
Maye | 1660. | 

A large blue marble slab in the nave floor states that 
Vader this marble stone Besteth | the Body of Elizabeth Fynn | 
Late Wife of Rob* Fynn of this | Parish and Daughter of Francis ] 
Copinger of Bramford Gent^ who | Departed this life | September the 
14 . 1683. I 

For nineteen Yeares I liv'd a Virgin life, | 
For seaventeen more beeing married, liv'd a wife, | 
At thirty six pale Death my life assail'd, | 
And as I liv'd I dy'd, belov'd, bewail'd. | 
Here Besteth the Body of Bob. | Fynn, who departed this life | 
the 6«^ of Jvly 1686. | 

It is curious to note that on the shield carved above this epitapb 
the artss appear of Copinger only. 

The only other memorial slab in the church lies next the above : — 

Here lyeth the body | of Margery Lewys | bvried the 13*** or 
April I Anno 1642. | 

In the churchyard, by the N. chancel wall is a marble ledger stone 
sculptured with these arms : Thome, impaling Barry of ten. The crest 
is a lion rampant. Beneath is engraven : — 

M.S. I Hie iacet Oliverus Thome, huius | Ecclesiee Olim Bector^ 
Obijt Die xiii | Mar . An . Dora . mdgcxx | i£tAtis Su89 ui. | 

A raised brick tomb on the S.W. side of the churchyard displays, 
this shield on its ledger:— a chevron between 3 doves (?) rousant , 
on a chief 3 mullets. 

In Memory of | Fynn Aldus Gen* | late of this Parish | who died 
28*>> July 1762 | Aged 72. 1 

H. W. Birch. 

Henlbt (Additional). 
The following additions and corrections to the Bev. H. W. Biroh'a 
notas on this church (Vol. vi. p. 10) may, it is hc^ed, prove acceptable. 


The last word of the inscription over the west door is " eius," not 
"sue." The Seckford arms are (ermine) on tL/eue 3 escallope (or) not a 
cheyroD. The inner south doorway is not Norman transition^ but the 
remains of a purely Norman semi-circular arch, of which the zigzag and 
billet mouldings remain. At some subsequent period it has been taken 
out and pointed, the key-stones having then been cut to form the apex, 
and only a sufficient quantity of the stone work retained to form a 
oonsiderably smaller arch than the original appears to have been ; the 
pillars and capitals ai^e also wanting. The Aumbry is not square but 
lanoet-headed, matching two small windows in the north wall of the 
ohanoel. The inscription to the memory of John Veer, gent, is on a 
large slab within the sacrarium, at the north end of the altar, about 
eight inches below the level of the present flooriug. The name of the 
third son is Francis. Another slab, the exact position of which is not 
BOW known, but probably lying near the above, bears the inscription : — 
" Saored | to the memory | of Mrs Anne Veere | who was bom in Feb : 
I Ano 1643 I ik died in May 1742." Mrs. Elizabeth Vere, whom the 
tablet on the north wall commemorates, was probably a daughter of 
Rev. . . . Glanville, incumbent of OflTton. 

The hatchment hanging above Rev. J. M. Theobald's mural tablet 
was painted for Mary (who died Novr. 27th, 1809, aged 56 years), the 
first wife of the late John Medows Theobald, of Claydon Hall, Esq. 
She was a daughter of William Snell, of Needham Market, gent, and 
her family not possessing armorial bearings, her husbtuid's " Coat ' was 
made to do duty for her. The fourth quartering is that of Vaughan. 

The hatchment on the opposite wall was undoubtedly painted for 
Mrs. Sleorgin, whose husband apparently was not entitled to bear arms, 
and her own parent's impaled " Coat " has been painted on a lozenge for 
her in consequence. Its bearings are dexter quarterly. 

1. Gould; or on a chevron az. 3 pine-apples of the first between 
88 many roses of the second. 

2. GeUthorp ; arg. two bars gu. within a bordure sa. 

3. CroM» ; arg. five crosses crosslet in Saltire gu. 

4. Bulkeley ; sa. a clievron between 3 bull's heads cabossed arg. 
impaling Shaw ; arg. a chevron between 3 lozenges ermines. 

The following short pedigree of the Gould family illustrates these 
quartenngs except No. 3. Perhaps some reader of the Ea^f Anglian can 
account for this quarter.

Babrow Hall^ near Burt St. Edmund's. — Can anyone give a descrip- 
tion of, or refer to a view of Barrow Hall, eight miles from Bury St 
Edmund's ? Was it of brick, and is there any house of the same size 
and style left standing in the county ? By the extent of the moat 
which surrounded it, and yet, I believe, full of water, it must have been 
a considerable place.

Sm Robert CuRaov or Lord Curzon. — Clarke in his Hittory of 
Iptvoieh mentions a Lord Curzon as a resident in 1522. Wodderspoon 
says, in addition, that when Henry vin. visited Ipswich he stayed with 
Lord Cunson, and that his Queen, Katherine of Arragon, had a few 
years previously been the guest of this saine Lord Curzon. Was this 
Sir Robert Curzon (for I believe there was no English Peer of that name 
in the 16th century) connected with any fomily of that name In the 
neighbourhood of Ipswich t Can anyone tell me when he came to 
Ipswich, and the date of his death t Mr. B. P. Grimsey haa published 
full details of the house in which this courtier resided.

A MS. History of Lynn and other West Norfolk mss. — In 
November 1872, I heard that some 118& relating to Lynn in Norfolk, 
were in the hands of the Rev. W. B. Dalby of Sharingtou Rectory, 
Thetford. In answer to queries Mr. Dalby wrote that the mss. in h^s 
hands at that time consisted of a MS. History of Lynn in a forward 
state for publication, compiled by his brother-in-law, "the late Mr. 
Sayle." Also genealogies of many West Norfolk families; transcripts 
from Msa. in the British Museum in a forward state for publication ; 
thirdly, copies from register books of Lynn and neighbourhood. The 
papers were then "very much mixed up." Shortly afterwards Mr. 
Dalby died, and the death notice stated that he had formerly been vicar 
of Wiggenhall St. Mary Magdalen, and rector of Hinton St. George in 
Somersetshire. All his papers remained in the possession of his widow. 
I should be glad to learn what became of the above mss., and who, if 
anyone, has them now.

An "Estate at Earl Stonham" in 1762.— The Rev. John 
Hutchinson, Curate of St. Botolph, Aldgate, and Lecturer of St. 
Catherine Coleman, London, in his Will, dated 4th October, 1748, and 
proved 2l8t May, 1762 ( mentions, "my estate at Earlstonham in 
CO. of Suffolk." Can anyone throw light on this statement f John 
Hutchinson was thrice married, to Frances circa 1722, to Catherine circa 
1726, and to Anna circa 1738. Perhaps one of his wives may have 
come from Earl Stonham. The Registers or Parish Account Books may 
help to answer these questions.

The Conflict between Saxons and I)anbs at Assinoton (Vol. vi., 
p. 47). — "G. J. C." will find a paper on the Battle of Asaanduna in 
Transactions of Essex Arch. Soc. (Vol. iv., part i., p. 5), identifying 
Assendune with Ashdon near Saffron Walden. 

W. E. Latton. 

Suffolk has no right to claim the site of this battle. It took place 
at Ashingdon* in Essex^ A description of the battle, etc., will be found 
in Freeman's Norman Conquest (second edit., Vol. i. (1870), p. 386, 
et seq,, end of chap. v. and see note vv. at end of Vol.) The place names 
"Canewdon" (Canute's Hill) and *' Battle Bridge" are found in the 
neighbourhood and are supposed to record this event. Assington in 
Suffolk is famous as being since Henry viii's. reign the seat of the Gurdon 
family. There are some fine monuments to them in the church, and 
there is a picturesque old hall hard by.

Obadiah Sedgwick (Vol v., 336, 368 ; Vol. vi., p, 31).— In Col. 
Chester's London Marr. Licenses 1521 — 1869, are the following: — 

Sedgwick, Obadiah, of All Hallows, Bread Street, groc^, bachelor, about 25, and 
Susanna Tavemer, of Uxbridge, Middlesex, spinster, about 20 ; consent of father, 

Philip Tavemer, of same, derk at St. Laurence Jury, St. Gregory, or All 

HalloweB, Bread Street, 6th November, 1662. (Registry of the Vicar General of 

Sedgwick, Obadiah, of St. Catherine Coleman, London, merchant, widower, 
about 34, and Mrs. Sarah Long, of St. Mildred, Bread Street, spinster, about 22, her 

father's consent, at St. Mildred aforesaid, 12th Deer., 1674. (R^fistay of the 

Vicar General of the Archbishop of Canterbury.) 

Possibly the reference in each is to the same person, but the 
recurrence of the Christian name " Obadiah,'' here and elsewhere, is a 
little singular. 

Lords of East Anglian Manors: Willinoham, Cambs. (Vol. v., 
p. 96). — There were certainly three manors in Willingham. (1) The 
Manor of Willingham (proper), was originally granted to the Convent of 
Ely by Ulva. On the foundation of the See of Ely, the bishop's 
possession, soon after being alienated to the Crown, passed to Thomas 
Parkes of Wisbech, with whose daughter and co-heiress it descended to 
Sir Miles Sandys of Wilburton. It afterwards passed into the hands of 
the Holman and other families. (2) The Manor of Brunes (or Bomeys), 
so named after its owner, passed into the hands of the Bishop of Ely, 
and was held by Richard Druell in 1496. It subsequently was 
held by Marsh, Parker, and others. (3) The Manor of Rampton 
Lisles belonged to the de Lisle's of the adjoining parish of Rampton. 
It is now enfranchised. 



Pleas held at Bottisham before Hugh la Zouche, William de Windsor,

(Vol. v., pp. 257,-8, 344, 371,) 

The Painted Glass at Sottbrlbt. 

Most of the ancient painted glass in the church has disappeared. 
The only portion remaining of inte^rest is in a little window on the south 
side of the chancel. It represents the bust only of the Saviour, with 
long flowing hair ; the neck is bare and a low dress is visible around the 
chest, ornamented at the top with a running sprig. The head is surrounded 
by a large cruciform nimbus, the crosses yellow and between them rich 
ruby glass. The border around the figure is ornamented with crosses 
(pat^e) and trellis work between. The back ground is filled in with 
vine leaves (His emblem) upon a dark ground, the whole forming a 
pretty and interesting subject. The date of its execution was the first half 
of the 14th. century. In a north window are two Angels and some frag- 
ments of heraldic glass. In a south window opposite are shields con- 
nected with the Playter and Barne families. In the east window between 
two of the apostles is a representation of Sir Wm. Playter kneeling with 
clasped hands before a desk upon which is an open book ; he is clad in 
armour of the period. On his jupon are the Playter arms, arg. 
three bendlcts wavy azure impaling quarterly, first Dennis arg. a chev. 
sable leet three mullets pierced gules : secondly Bryesworth azure a lion 
rampant argent crowned or, kneeling. Behind him are seven of his 

The Painted Glass at Bricett Church. 

We learn from old writings that the East window was filled with 
painted glass, which included the figure of St Edward the Confessor. 
There are now only four subjects left, and these have been placed in a 
South window ; they are in quatrefoils, and represent the four Evangelists 
with their emblems. St. Mark is seated upon an ornamental bench, 
wearing a blue robe and yellow underdress ; in his hand he holds a pen, 
with which he has transcribed his name Jgrarnis upon a scroll before him. 
The back ground is rich ruby glass. His emblem as an Evangelist is 
seen above him issuing from clouds as a winged lion. The wings of St 
Mark are composed of feathers of gold. The border is very prettily 
designed, a golden cross within a circle painted black. The feet are 
uncovered. St. Luke is also seated, and is seen in the act of mending 
a pen, which he holds in his left hand, with a peculiar long handled 


knife in the other ; before him is a scroll with Junrs written upon it. 
The robe is shown on glass of a ruby tint, and the under garment of 
orange. The wings are elevated, the feathers being gold and white. 
The back-ground in blue floriated glass is richly executed. Above him 
coming out of clouds is the winged ox. St. Matthew is also seated at a 
desk. The outer garment is of an orange colour aud the under dress 
pink. He is in the act of mending his peculiar formed pen with the 
blade of a cimitar-shaped knife. He has also wings. The back-ground 
is formed of blue floriated glass. Above the Evangelist is an angel 
with head radiated. The border composed of crosses (Pat^e) upon a 
dark ground is exceedingly rich. The scroll is inscribed ^st]^tus. St. 
John likewise is seated before a writing table, on which is a scroll, and 
with a pen he is seen inscribing his name ^o^nnun^ His robe is of an 
orange tint and the under dress blue, the wings as previously described. 
The border is engrailed and ornamented upon a dark ground. Above is 
an eagle descending upon the Evangelist from clouds. The nimbus in 
each case is conspicuous by its absence. These most interesting and 
rare figures measure 23 inches by 18 inches.

Earthworks at Grbat Fakbnham, Suffolk. —At Fakenham Magna, 
Suffolk, six miles from Thetford, I have been examining some earth- 
works in a plantation, about a quarter of a mile from the road, which 
are not to be seen till the plantation is entered. 

They comprise a circular rampart and a moat. There is a gap in the 
rampart on the western side, although the moat has not been filled up. 
Tradition says that two cottages formerly stood in this gap, although 
there are no traces of them, but whether the rampart was levelled to build 
them, or advantage taken by the builders of the constniction of 
the rampart, must be left I accurately measured the dimensions, 
vhich are as follows : — distance round, on top of rampart, 257 yards ; 
diameter from top centre of ramparts, 88 yards. (It is therefore not a 
true circle.) From top of mmpart to bottom of moat — from 34 to 43 feet. 
The whole is on a level (otherwise) meadow not ten yards from the small 
stream flowing past Bard well and Sapiston mills aud Euston Hall and 
thence into the Little Ouse between Bamham and Euston. 

Has any previons account of these earthworks appeared? From 
the description given is it at all likely to be Ancient British? Its 
circular form seems to support this theory.

As far as I know, there exists no printed pedigi*ee of this family. 

The Tiineys were seated at Shelley Hall from probably about the end of 

the fifteenth century. Page says that " Frederic Tilney sold the estate 

to Thomas Kerridge, who was High Sheriff in 1647." I know nothing 


of the history of the Kerridges before they settled at Shelley. The 
above-named Thomas married a daughter of a merchant and alderman 
of London.

The following extract is from Hawes' History of Framlingham^ 
1798, p. 306 : 

Monuments in Framlinghxim church. " Over the Chancel door is an 
elegant dark grey marble Monument, embellished with a mantling ; and 
two urns, on which are the Arms of Porter, as blazoned p. 306 [" the 
Arms of Porter, Sable, three Bells Argent, a Chief Ermine; impaled 
with Neeve, Argent, a Cross Sable, charged with five Fleurs-de-Lis of . 
the first, an Annulet for difference "]. On the Tablet below is this 
Inscription : — 

To the Much respected Memory of Jane Kbrridgb, Widow of 
Thomas Kerridge, late of S/ieUeyffaU, in this County, Esquire, 
Daughter and Heir of Richard Porter, formerly of this Place, Esquire, 
who Died the 5**» Day of September 1744, 

And also of Cecilia Kerridge, her only Daughter and Heir, who 


died the 8th daj of June 1747. William Folkbs, Esquire, hath cattsed 
this Monument to be erected. L. F. Roubiliac, fecit." 

By the courtesy of Mrs. Tayler of Shelley Hall, I am able to add 
the following shields, painted on hatchments, which -were formerly 
in the Church, but are now preserved in a lumber-room at the Hall 
(occupied as a farm-house for the last 150 years). 

I. Party of three : — dexter shield, per fesse sa. and arg. a pale 
countercharged 3 trefoils slipped of the second ; middle shield, az. on a 
saltire between 4 fleurs-de-lis or 5 escallops of the field ; sinister shield, 
or a chief gules. 

II. Sa. on a pile arg. a caltrop of the field, impaling, az. 2 lions 
combattant guard, arg. Crest — a caltrop sa. 

III. As II. — no crest. 

IV. Eerridge with Porter (Sa. 3 bells arg. a canton erm.) in 
pretence, impaling Porter. Crest — on a mound vert a caltrop sa. 

V. Kerridge with Porter in pretence — no crest. 

The Shelley estate was purchased (Hn 1744) of the Kerridges by 
Samuel Rush of Benhall, who died in 1783, bequeathing his estates to 
his kinsman William Beaumaurice Rush, afterwards knighted. I should 
be obliged if any reader could tell me the exact date when the Kerridges 
sold Shelley Hall. Did Mrs. Tho. Korridge {nee Jane Porter) live there 
till her death in 1744? My own ancestors occupied the place from 
1744 till 1875, when it was sold on the death of Mrs. Cripps, Sir 
William's daughter.

* Yarmouth shipownen had a large trade in the Mediterranean for oenfeuries only 
killed by Steam Vettels of late years. These vessela were called " Straightamen,** and 
were convoved by men of war every autumn. 

t On 2l8t May, 1660, James Puckell and another were committed by the Hoose 
for agisting the escape of MUes Gorbett (Recorder of Yarmouth) the Regicide, 
by hiring a vessel for tnat purpose. 

t Affue was then and for ;nany years afterwards a common complaint in Yar- 
mouth, out now owing, it is supposed, to the better drainage of the marsh district to 
the west of the town, is practically unknown in Yarmouth.

* John Baldenttone wa8 one of the ten who were appointed to act with regard to ' 
the foundation of the old meeting House (now Unitanan Chapel) in Yarmouth, of 
which the celebrated Wm. Bridge was ordained pastor 10th September, 1643, and this 
connexion continued, as we find in 1761 Bartholomew Baldestone left £100 to that 
Chapel. (Pahner's Perln. ii., 38, 47). 


The situation of this county with its low-lying fen lands was not 
likely to attract settlers, yet its navigable rivers laid it open to the 
incursions of the norsemen, who seized upon such slightly elevated 
situations as were discovered. 

Their presence is shewn by the fact that there are thirty six places 
ending in ton, twenty seven in ham, fourteen in ley, four in borough or bury, 
and ten in worth, though the last is more closely connected with Frisian 
occupation The only traces perhaps of the Celts are to be found in the 
rivers Cam and Granta, which shews that they were either very thinly 
scattered or were driven westward at a very early period.

Rural Intimidation in the Fifteenth Century. — Amongst the 
early ("ambs. indictments occurs this account of intimidation in the 
fifteenth century : — " Wilhelmus Fish de yermouth in com Noif chapman, 
machinnus ac proponens Thoman Melmau felonice depredare, et domos 
suas felonice comburere, scripsit quandam billam oontinentem quod idem 
Thomas poneret xx" ad quandam crucem ligneam juxta Knees worth *

portam mansi ipsius in Royston felonice posuit." 

The conviction of this enterprising chapman is not recorded.

The Late Use op the Horn Hook in Norfolk. — In a rhyming 
(160 line) Broadsheet, without date, but apparently issued about the 
close of last century by a Mr. Watson, a precursor of Whitely, to 
the Ladies and Gentlemen of Thetford and its vicinity, in which 
he commends to their attention the goods he dealt in, viz. : — Books, 
Stationery, Musical Instruments, Patent Medicines, Snuff, Herb 
Tobacco, Coffee, Roots, Shrubs, Trees, and Plants, Millinery, Drapery, 
Grocery, Cutlery, Ironmongery, Perfumery, to say nothing of the Post 
OflSce, a Register Office for Servants, and the business of an Under- 
taker, occur the following lines : — 

" Fenning, Dyche and Dil worth's Spelling 

Such as children may read well in ; 

Primmers HoitibookSj Book of Pictures 

Pleasing Toys for Infant Lectures." 

Can any one tell me when the Horn-book fell into disuse 1 I had 
no idea it could be found on sale at the country stationers at so late a 
period as that indicated. What was its form and character ? 

Adams, Gardyner, Kettle, Man wood. Partridge, op Suffolk. — 
Can any reader help me to discover the parentage of the Thomas 
Partridge, of whom I have the following particulars 1 Bom about 1560 ; 
from 1585 till 1607 his children (Thomas, Daniel, Elizabeth, Mary, John, 
and William, by Elizabeth his first wife, whom he married about 1585; 
Richard, Thomas, Susan, and Robertj by his second wife, whom he 
married about 1600) were baptized at Higham; 22nd Aug. 1599, he 
bought land at Stoke-by-Nayland (deed in my possession)*; in 1617 his 
dau., Mary, was married at Capel St. Mary,t in 1624 his second wife 
(Susan) was bur. there, and in 1625 he was there married to his third 
wife, Alice Wilkin. He made two Wills, copies of which are preserved 
at Ipswich, and in both of which he describes himself as of Capel, 
yeoman. The former is dated 19 May, 1624, the latter 8 Dec, 1625 
(proved 17 July, 1627). In both he names his lands at Capel, Higham, 
and Stoke, and, after providing for his children and grandchildren, he gives 
£5 to each of the following — " my cousin John Manwood of Ipswich, 
his (John Manwood's) sister Martha Adams, his sister Mary Oardyner^ 
and Phemima KettU my cousin." In the latter Will the bequest is to 
the wife of John Manwood my cousin deceased. Two post mortem 
inquisitions were taken, the former at Ipswich, 14 Sept., 3 Car. ; the 
latter at Bury, 1 Sept, 5 Car. J Where was Tho. Partridge buried? 
Apparently not at Capel, Higham, or Stoke.

A jury being summoned Richard is tried and acquitted. The other 
three men mentioned in this inquisition had not been taken, and the 
Sheriff reports that they were not to be found in the county. 

Wetherle. They jury say that John Skynner de Orwell and John 
Maddy of the same, on the Tuesday before the Feast of 
the nativity of St. John the Baptist, 4 Richard ii., entered the close of 
Geoffery Michel at Amyngton, and feloniously carried away his goods 
and chattels " videlicet unam carectam ferro ligatam et hostia 
domorum & alia utensilia domus ad valentiam C^- (fee." 

Also they say that John Cook de Berton, and John " fero*" domini 
de Scales " were the chief leaders and malefactors in the aforesaid felony 
committed on Geoffrey Michel. 

Also that John Cook was a leader of felons, and that he with others, 
on the Sunduy next after the feast of Corpus Christi, feloniously broke 
into the close of John Walter at Crawden and seized and carried away 
his goods and chattels to the value of 40*-* and that the same John, 
on the same day, was the congregator and leader of the people who 
despoiled Thomas Elleswurth at Elleswurth. And that he was the 
* insurrector ' of the conventicles at Swasshech, and Fen Draiton, and 
lead the said conventicles with him to Feu Stanton in Hunts. 

Stane, Wetherle^ The juries of these hundreds say that John 

Amyngford. Staunford ^Sadeler' of London, was a common 

leader, and congregator of malefactors to the 
pulling down and burning of the houses of the neighbours, and 
threatened Thomas Cavell, John Topclyve, and other faithful men of 
the king, so that they dared not remain in their own houses. And he 
said that he had a commission from the king 'in quadam pixide' 
for destroying the traitors of the king. 

Also they say that the same John Staunford feloniously entered 
the close of Thomas North at Abbyngdon, and seized a horse price 
2 marks, on Saturday after Corpus Christi. 

Also they say that William Malverne de Asshwell, on the same day 
entered the close of Thomas North of Abbyngdon, and assulted John 
' famulus,' and struck and wounded him. 

(The sheriff* reports that neither of these six men can be found 
in the county.) 


Membrane 4. 

Pleas held at RojBton on Saturday in the vigils of the Translation 
of St Thomas the martyr 5 Richard ii. 

Hundreds of They twelve jurors say that William Vicory 

Amyngford and Stotoe, of Lynton and John Webbe of Pampes- 

worth were felons associated with John 

Hauchach the chief leader, and John Peper. And that they, on Saturday 

after Corpus Christi, 4 Rich, ii., were forward in the overthrowing of 

the buildings of Thomas Haselden, and the selling of his goods and 

chattels. ''£t publico proclamar' feceruut assuras et 

proditiones scilicet septies in die vel plures in prejudicium domhii 
Regis." And be it known that the said William Vicory gave himself i|p 
and remains in the custody of the Sheriff. 

And that the said John Webb with other felons on the same day, 
at the manor of Thomas Haselden in Stepel Mordon, threatened divers 
faithful men of life and limb, because they would not aid in the pulling 
down of the houses and buildings of the said Thomas, besides doing other 
felonies there, and this of his own free will. And that the same John 
Webb sold there "unum tass' pis'" belonging to Haselden, for 60*» 
and for which he took 12^* in part payment from Thomas North in the 
presence of John Martyn of Litlyngtou, and Thomas Birton, and other 
trustworthy men, who come before the justices, and being sworn, and 
diligently examined upon the premises, witness fully that these things 
are so ('qui ea sic esse plene testantur'). And the said John Webb 
had been arrested by Sir John Dengayu and William de Notton as a 
suspect. J. Webb is arraigned before the justices, 'qui ea iis dedicit^ 
ide per discretionem dictorum assignatorum decoUatus est.' 

They jury say that William atte Ree of Stepel Mordon, William 
Shepherde servant of Geoffery Cobbe, together with others unknown, and

and entered it ; and that he is a common malefactor. And that the 
said William atte Ree procured these and other evil doers to burn the 
buildings of the said John Walter there, but they were not burnt 

Whereupon William atte Ree and William Shepherde were arrested, 
the former being committed to prison to await the arrival of the assigns. 
Shepherd puts himself on his country and is acquitted. The pledges for 
bis future good behaviour were Robert Tuyllyet, William Fythion, 
William Hovesdon, and William Margaret. 

John Prat was not yet arrested, and the Sheriff was ordered to have 
his body before the justices at Cambridge on Monday, in the feast of St. 
Mary Magdaline. On that day the Sheriff returns answer that Prat was 
not to be found in his bailliwick. On the same day William atte Ree 


is arraigned before twelve jurors from the neighbourhood of Crauden, 

and found not guilty. His pledges were Fythyon, Thomas 

North, John Eldefield, and Walter Rous. 

The jury of these two hundreds also say that Robert Wrythte of 
Baldock, feloniously overthrew the houses of Thomas Haselden at 
Geldene Mordon and elsewhere, and seized and sold his goods and 
chattels to the value of 1 00s., to wit on Saturday after Corpus Christi. 

Also they say that Geoffery Cobbe with other unknown persons 
subject to him, feloniously and like traitors entered the manor of Thomas 
Haselden at Geldene Mordon and Stepel Mordon, on the same day, and 
publicly proclaimed there that they, the insurgents, had His Majesty's 
commission for doing many evil deeds, when they had no such thing. 
And they sold there 166 quarters of "bras'", 6 quarters 7 bushels of 
" pis' ", 5 quarters 2 bushels of " drag' ", belongiug to the said Thomas. 
Robert and Geoffery werenot to be found in the country. 

The jury also say that Thomas Godeuar of Roiston, and John 
Poomere of Therfield, on Monday after Corpus Christi, came to Roiston 
and feloniously broke into the close of Sir Roger the (Chaplain, and 
seized and carried away his goods and chattels to the value of 100s., and 
that they also broke into the mill (or broke the mill) of Warin Martin 
of Roiston, and seized his goods to the value of 40s. 

They also say that John Jankyn of Foulmei*e, on Sunday after 

threatened Nicholas Roberd of Whaddon, with the burning of 

his house unless he joined the insurgents. 

And they t<ay that William Vicory of Lynton, and John Peper of 
the same, were with John Hauchach of their own free will, during the 
time that he was leader of the felons who attacked the manors of 
Thomas Hasilden, Thomas Bradefield, William Batemnn, and the Prior 
of St. John at Shenegeye, on Saturday after the Corpus Christi, and 
broke into, destroyed, and burnt their houses — and that Vicory and 
Peper committed such robberies during the two following days. Vicory 
is already in pnson as appears above, but Cobbe and Pmt his servnut,

Blakbnham Magna. 

Great Blakenham, or, as it is called in Dowsing's Journal, 
"Blakenham at the Water," is, as that name implies situate on the 
Gipping, near to which stream the church is built It is a small 
structure of late Norman character, built of rubble, and having chancel,' 
nave with south porch, and square west tower. An organ chamber has 


recently been added north of the chancel. The porch has open sides 
with remains of wooden tracery, and the king-post over its doorway 
exhibits a very defaced and weatherworn carving in relief of the Blessed 
Virgin (the Patron) with the Child in her arms, under a crocketed 
canopy with pinnacles at sides. 

The church is lighted at the east by three small lancets widely 
splajed, over them being a small circular opening. In the Decorated 
window in the tower are one or two quarries of old glass. Two 
mediseval bells hang in the steeple, the lettering very beautiful in 
Gothic type with Lombardic capitals —

+ Shiibtnivi ^iivoi 
§aiiBtttibu8 ^unc ^itnxtu. 

The capitals and other ornaments are like those on the bells at Plajford. 

The round-headed doors and windows in the church are destitute 
of mouldings, as is also the piscina of the same date. There is no 
chancel arch, but the Perpendicular doorway and staircase to the rood 
loft remain in the south wall. Some remains of the screen have been 
worked up into the altar rails. The stone work of the doorway has 
evidently been re-used, for on its inner side are remains of mouldings 
coloured black and red, and having no connexion with its present use. 
Until of late years this was ph\stered up, and the Elizabethan carved 
pulpit furnished with its sounding-board was set against it. No doubt 

there was painted over it the text of which a portion remains, 

knowledge | . . . . and searched | . . . . and prepared | . . . . parables. 
Ea|....12:9: | (Part of the verse translated in A. V. "and 
moreover because the Preacher was wise, he till taught the people 
knowledge ; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out and set in order 
many proverbs.") 

Just inside the south door stands the octagoual font raised on two 
steps, and bearings on its panelled sides four traceried devices, 
alternately with four shields displaying the instruments, &c., of the 
Passion: — I. The Cross; II. The JSpear and Reed with Sponge, crossed 
in saltire between the Hammer, Pincers, and Dice; III. The Scourging 
Post surmounted by a cock and accompanied by two Scourges ; IV. The 
pierced Heart, within the Crown of Thonis. 

The shaft of the font is supported at the angles by boldly pro- 
jecting buttresses. 

Dowsing, when he came here, found not much to complain of: 
" Only the steps to be levelled, which I gave them 8 days to do it." A 
few years after his visit a large monument was set up in the church to 
a London merchant. It is a massive altar tomb, the top formed by a 
heavy slab of polished black marble, and adorned in front with three 


small pillars of the same material. Above, behind the tomb rises a 
tablet flanked by two chubby naked cherubs and surmounted by an 
armorial achievement : — Or a chevron barry-nebulee arg. and az. between 
3 stags proper (an annulet gu. for difference), Stoift, The crest is a 
demi stag holding in his mouth a convolvulus flower proper. The 
epitaph is written in Roman capitals, except the verse, which is in 
italics : —

'T is the first Epitaph of fame. 
This monument was formerly on the north side of the sacrarium, 
but has been removed and is now under the tower. In the floor in 
front of it is an inscribed slab : — 

Here resteth the body of | Ann Wood, the wife of John | Wood, 
Who departed this | life Jan vary the 6 An? Do : | 1668. | 

The only other inscription in the building is upon a tablet on S. 
chancel wall : — 

This tablet was erected | by the inhabitants in testimony of | their 
esteem for the late | Rev. James Wood | who was twenty-five years | 
curate of this parish, j He died 2 Feb. 1837 | Aged 54 years, | " He did 
the thing which was right, and spake | the truth from his heart." | 

Upon the masonry at south-east angle of nave are cut the initials 
R.T. and date 1714. 

Blarbnham Parva. 

This church like the last is dedicated to S. Mary, and consists of 
early English chancel and Decorated nave with square west tower and 
south porch. In the niche over the entrance the figure of the patron 
saint was no doubt formerly placed. On each side of the three lancet 
windows which pierce the east wall of chancel is a large trefoil-headed 


niche containing a fresco ; that on the north had formerly the Assump- 
tion for its subject, but having been much defaced the figure of our 
Lord bearing the Cross has been substituted. The other painting 
represents St. John Baptist clad in a camel's skin, the head and hoofs of 
which appear between his feet. Over the camel skin he wears a white 
tunic with gracefully disposed folds. In his left hand he holds a book 
and Holy Lamb "Ecce Agnus Dei." Both figures are painted as 
standing upon brackets. The eastern splay of a lancet in N. wall 
shews another picture of our Lord, the other splay of the window being 
occupied by a female figure with a dove in her hands. These mural 
paiutings were much '* restored " and retouched in 1850. 

There is a piscina under an ogee head in the chancel. Upon the 
south wall hangs the Royal Escutcheon of James IL, lettered l3 R. 
The font is octagonal and quite plain. Buried below the present tiled 
pavement of the chancel are two tombstones to former rectors : — 

Here resteth the body of Mr. | John Denton who was y« | Rector 
of this place y« space of | 24 years, and Departed this Life | July 29, 
1709, in y« 60 year I of his age. |

A.D. MDCCCXLIX., with this^ shield : — Arg. on a chevron sa. between 
3 hawk's heads erased az., as many cinquefoils of the field, Jackson, 

Upon a tablet in south wall is this inscription : —

Also of Percy, fifth sou of the above, | who died January 5^ 1854, aged

Fatal result op a Temfeut at Longstanton Church, 1362. — 
The following hicident may be interesting to historians of the Church of 
All Saints, Longstanton, Cambs. On the Saturday after the feast of St. 
Hillary, 35 Edward in., about the hour of Vespers, John Syger aged 


18, and Katherine Gooz aged 70, were at prayers in the above Church, 
during a might j tempest. The wind fell upon the Church vehemently, 
and a tree (arbor) price 3<*-» and stones {lapidet) price 6<*-» broke 
through upon them, and quashed their bodies. Katherine was killed 
immediately, but John lived till Sunday. The inquest is to be found 
in Coroner's Roll 18. Membrane 58 (d.).

Seditious Words in 164 J. — The following Extract is from the 
evidence exhibited against Robert Levitt, minister of Chevely, Caml)s., 
March 22, 164|. 

John Rahy of Netonuirket^ blacksmith ; Being at Mr. Levitt's house 
he asked * What news 1 ' Deponent replied, * We hear there is a Lord or 
great commander slain ' Mr. Levitt replied * Hee is a Roundhead, 
'tis well he is slaine, thereby he hath escaped a hangiuge. I am afraide 
if they goe on there will more come to that ende.' 

'No date is assigned to this conversation, but may it not be a 
reference to death of Hampden in the June previous? 

W. M. Palmer. 


The parish Church of Chediston is undergoing considerable repair, 
and on July 27th I paid a visit to inspect some mural paintings which 
have come to light after the removal of the plaster from the walls. 

On the north wall, in about the usual position, is a large head of 
St. Christopher, as it would seem, remarkably well drawn, and of a 
benevolent expression. Two windows, which seem to date from the earlier 
part of the sixteenth century, have been inserted in the wall, and the 
more westward of the two has interfered with the well-known scene in 
which the saint is always depicted. These windows are pre-Reformation 
in date, in spite of the mullions being constructed of brick. In the 
upper part of the more westward one is the rebus of Claxton, the word 
rla« on a tun, followed by — mru, labi \ii'%t. 

There is on the same wall the recumbent figure of a woman, under 
a thick line, as of the top of a tomb, on which is a foot. In connection 
ivith this are other indistinct lines. 

The west wall has a large expanse of seventeenth century colouring, 
two cherubs holding back crimson curtains, the unfolding of which 
reveals a staff or sceptre on a globe, from which spring two branch- 

Suckling notes Haman Claxton as patron of the rectory in 1566 and 
1573, but the rebus described must be a generation earlier than this man. 
The principal family of the place went by its local designation more 
than once. In the Calendar of Early Suffolk Wills * occurs the name 
of William Cheston of Chedeston, between the years 1458 and 1477, 
and William de Chedeston is mentioned before this as holding forty 
acres in this parish, of the King. 

An early English piscina, open to the west as well as the north has 
been uncovered. The font bears emblems of the Evangelists and shields 
in the following order : — The Angel, the Shield of the Passion, the Bull, 
a shield bearing a plain cross, the Eagle, a shield bearing a cross fleury, 
the Lion, the shield of the Holy Trinity. 

*EaH Ans^iany O.S., Vol. m., p. 53. 


There is a pretty little window of the latter part of the thirteenth 
century in the Bonth chancel wall, in which are the arras of Mowbray 
conjoined with a shield bearing chequy ar. and gules.

The Cup given to Queen Euzabbtu bv the Norwich Dutch 
Church. — Upon the Queen's visit to the City of Norwich in 1578, in the 
name of the Dutch Church Congregation, the Minister made an oration 
in her Majesty's hearing, and presented her with a Cup, valued at £50. 
— " very curiously and artificially wrought." — Is it known what became 
of this Cup ? If any of the Plate formerly belonging to Queen Elizabeth 
is still in existence, where is it likely to be found f 

A Peculiar Ecclesiastical Offence. — Mr Robert Grimer parson 
of Wicken, Cambs., who was ejected for scandalous life August 30*** 1644, 
had this complaint brought against him — *That he caused Thomas 
Cobb of Burwell to be presented at the Ecclesiastical Court for not 
taking off his hat when he passed by the back of the church, a good 
distance off, when Mr Grimer was burying a body in the church yard.' 
Were such presentments common ? 

W. M. Palmer. 


Seal of the Dutch Church, Norwich (p. 64). — The Rev. J. W. 
Millard of Shimpling Rectory, has favoured us with a view of an 
impression he has of the Dutch Church Seal, formerly belonging to the 
Congregation, but now in private possession. It is evidently of English 
design and manufacture, and the clearly cut emblem is of great interest. 
The Seal is inches in diameter, and bears upon its face the figure 
of a strikingly stalwart man in a state of nudity, seated on what may 
be either a block of stone or a bale of merchandise. A vessel rides 
upon the sea at behind him. His head rests upon his left hand, and 
the elbow upon the left knee, while with his right hand he grasps in 
fraternal greeting the hand of a woman, somewhat oriental in appearance, 
presumably a representation of the English nation, and it may be, 
Norwich in particular. In immediate proximity to the female figure 
is the representation of a Church, upon the summit of the fine tower, 
(which might well do duty for that of St. Andrew's, Norwich), is a 
dove bearing an olive branch. Clouds above are rolling away. The 
legend, in Roman Capitals, reads : — HjEC. eccl. belg. tbhp. pebs. dug. 
alba. 1565. norw. erectu. in tutel. rbg. buz. subcbpt.

Yours of the 10 of this instant I reC* and am hartily sorry that 
my deceased Brothers Condition was such that both his wifes relations,

ourselves too much in looking back upon that which cannot be lielpen 
is to little or no purpos ; sir as the case stands you must give me leave 
to make use of my Executory Separily to discharge my selfe of those 
obligations wherein I stood bound with hym to severall persons so farr as 
the lawe will enable me, what I did for him in that — was merely out of 
kindness and I shall be loth, if I can help it, to ruin either myselfe and 
wife and child by that means sir, my ingagements for him will Exceed 
what his personall esteat extends to and Likewis what the mony which 
I am to receive upon the sale of his lands, I — to the vallo of 250/t and 
upwards which Burthen I assure you is too greate for me to beare there- 
fore I pray quiet your selfe and if you pleas you may forbeare in 


disquieting me in farther solicetationB in that kind wee all agree that my 
Brothers wifes demeanor hath been such as that she hath deserved well 
at our hands, but necessity hath no Lawe I cannot doe more for her than 
I am able to doe, and I partly beleve that she hath so good an upinion 
of me as go to aprehend yet not with standing the bad case I am left in, 
I have prevailed with my Bro : Roger to Joyne with me to enter a band 
in 200/t to pay her £10 per annum during her life at quarterly 
payments from Christmas last which we willingly and freely agreed to 
doe presently after my Bi-o death and for ought I observed by her or 
ever heard from her was since acceptable to her I hartyly wishe I could 
have found out away to have allowed her thris as much.

The Perils of the King's Highway, 1272. — The parish of 
Mel bourn, lying at the S.E. corner of Cambs., touches both the counties 
of Hertford and Essex. Until the time of the enclosure of the fields, 
the borderland consisted of wild heath and woodland. Along the 
Cambs. slant of the hills ran the Ickneild way, a main channel of com- 
munication in medisBval times. The jurisdiction of three Sheriffs 
meeting in this neighbourhood, probably had an effect quite the reverse 
of what it ought to have had, namely, that of making travellers trebly 
secure. The following Extract bears this out. It is taken from 
Assize Roll 85, 66 Henry iii. 

* Peter de Logges, Henry de Logges & Saul the Jew, were found 
murdered in Melbourn field. It is not known who killed them. The 
first finder, & four neighbours come, & are not suspected. No Englishry 
'Was presented, therefore judgment of murder upon the hundred of 
Armyngford. The chattels of the said Saul the Jew were worth 600 
marks, for which Robert de Fulham, his Majesty's justice will answer.' 

The village thus got off very easily. For, judging from the state of 
lawlessness which prevailed at that time here, and in the neighbouring 
village of Meldreth, one can hardly acquit the villagers of having some- 
thing to do with the murder of the Hebrew Jewel Merchant. In this 


same roll are the records of seven murders in Melboum and one in 
Meldretb, all of them committed bj the inhabitants, six of tbem by 
Meldreth men. 

W. M. Palmbb. 


Phillip Greenhood 1. He usually preaches against the Parliament 
Thomas Houton and calls them a company of wicked rebels, and 
Elizabeth Greenhood. ignorant people that are gathered together, and 
rob us of our goods, and call us malignants; 
which would live without government, and cry down the Bishops and 
all schools of good learning, and that they are worse than the Devils 
there government in Hell, and they that live any time shall see them 
pull down the churches. 

The same, and 2. He refused the sacrament to one who would not 
Robert Linsey come np to the rayles. 
William Vye. 
Witnesses as 3. He says that no prayer ought to be used but the 

in No. 1. common prayer book, and that it is a dangerous thing to 

pray by the spirit. 

The same, and 4. He saith the anabaptists and papists are gathered 

Thomas Bird together to make an end of all, they are like Samson's 

William Vye. ( foxes that look one one way, and another another way, 

to make an end of all ; they are like a scurvey taylour 

that took a gentlewoman's gound to make, and shrunk it and shrunk it, 

till it came to a doeseu of buttons, and at the last to nothing, or to the 

same effect. 

Phillip Greever 5. He saith that priests were wont to be (blank) 
twice a yeare and have duble honor, but now a cap and a knee and a 
good morrow, and good even, and how doe you, forsooth, and that is 
enough for now, they will put down all good ministers and put iu pedlars 
and tinkers and coblers too, now they run about after false teachers, and 
those that teach in tubs pray by the spirit, and extol I them up to 
heaven, as though they spake with an augel, which is a dangerous thing, 
which God accounts no more of than a dead dogg, aud speaking of the 
Sabbath day he says that servants and such as take pains may play and 
dance, and take their pastime, it being as good to them as sause to their 
meet, or to the like effect 

Elizabeth and 6. He saith that ever since the apostles time we 

Phillip Green bough should pray towards the east, and that they ought 

Thomas Houton. to receive the Sacrament nowhere but in the 

chancel. * 

The same. 7. He saith that they that resist the higher powers that is 

the Bishops, shall receive to themselves damnation, and that 

parliament, would take away learning and learned men, that they are 


the children of darkness, and kick and spurn at the lights and read and 

tear the hook, and thej would rend God out of heaven, if they could, 

and that they ought not to resist a King, though he were never so 


The same. 8. He saith that they cry out the commandments as 

though they were the means of utter destruction. 
Thomas Houton. 9. He saith that if you would know if you be in 
the truth you must go to Hampton to ye Bishops' articles, the church 
catechism and the ancient fathers. 

Samuel Whitehead 10. That at Easter he had a test that when 

Thomas Houghton they had done all that the Ring commanded the 

Elizabeth Greenough Lord was appeased with land, and they never 

heard him pray for the Parliament. 
Thomas Halstead, Thomas Houghton, 11. He refused to the con- 
Thomas Bird, William Field, stable of Downham to send a 
Elizabeth and Phillip Greenough, man charged with arms, he re- 
John Wells, Samuel Whitehead, fused, saying it was against the 
Robert Linsate, Jeremy Morill, King. 
William Vye. 
The living is worth £100 per annum. 

These depositions were taken before us March 22nd, 1 643 : — 
Henry Warner, Robert Gierke, Robert Robson, Samuel Spalding, 
Thomas French. 
On April 6th, 1644, the Earl of Manchester ordered him to be 
ejected for scandalous doctrine and being an enemy to Parliament. 

Additional MS., 15672. 

Edmund Mapletofb was appointed Rector of Downham Oct. 13th, 
1641. The purely political nature of this ejection is quite apparent 
On the same day and year a Mr. Edmund Mapletoft was ejected from 
the Rectory of Hardwick, Cambs., for reasons similiar to those given

Cowhird in EUeswurth qui maxima infirraitate detentus fuit, quiquidem

A Country Kkminesgencb op the Papal Interdict 1208-13. — 
The following inquest shows how long the horrors of the Interdict in 
King John's time were remembered by the country people : — 

Chesterton, It happened there on the Wednesday next after the 
feast of the conversion of St. Paul 34 Edward ni., that a certain John 
Maupas of Chesterton, capellanus, digging in his garden there (which 
garden formerly belonged to the Prior of Barnwell), found certain 
old bones, whether man's or woman's was not known & whether Jew's 
or Christian's was not known. Whereupon Edward de Onyng, coroner 
for the county, ai-rived on the Monday following, and had view of 
these same bones, <& inquired what bones they were, and how they came 
to be there. The jury sworn were as follows : — William de Saham, 
Boneface Chasteleyn, Thomas Freman, John Letice, Geoflfery Wade, 
Walter Lepere, John Chamberleyn, John Gotobedde, Robert Lucas, 
William Page, Robert de Eiston, & Thomas Warde of Cottenham. 
After duly investigating the matter, these worthy countrymen brought 
in this verdict ; they know not what bones they were, whether Jew's or 
Christian's, nor do they know for what reason these bones were placed 
there, but they suppose the said bones were thrown there at the 
time of the English Interdict, because the said bones are so old, and so 
fragile, that they easily break when handled, so decayed and ancient are 
they. And forasmuch as they suspect ill of no one, they can say 
no more in this matter. Coroner's Roily 18, 7. 51d,

To OUT Trusty and Welbelored the Alderman, cheife Burgesses <fe 
Comou Councell of our Burghe of S** Edmunds Bury in our County 
bf Suflfolke. 

Oharlbb R 

Trusty & welbeloved Wee greet you well. Whereas wee have been 
given to vnderstand that vpon the last vacancy of the place of a Reader 
for the parish of S* Nfaryes in our Towue of S<* Edmunds Bury in our 
County of Suif. by the death of Piggott two pious standing 

to be elected into the said place, The one William Stewkley an orthodox 
divine, the other John Bull a young man ft vnqualifyed for such an 
office, as being not in Priests orders, and under age, the said John Bull 
was for the reasons aforesaid protested ag^. by the Aldermtui & sefiall of 
the Burgesses of the Corporacon, at a Generall Hall called for the said 
Eleccon, not one member of the above parish being for the said John 
Bull as wee are informed. Wherevpon the said William Stewkley being 
recommended to the Bishopp of the diocese by the consent of the said 
Ald'man & cheife of the said society, as well ap^ued of for the said 
place, the Bishopp did Licence him to serve the said Cure, and also gave 
his determinacon that the said John Bull could not vndertake such an 
office being not capable by qualificacon, but did Inhibite the said John 
Bull from giving further trouble to the said William Stewkley therein ; 
j^Qtwithgtanding which the said John Bull still giving disturbance to the 
said William Stewkley & the Corporacon in regard he had one voice 
more then the other at the Eleccon ; Yet considering the difference of 
their qualificacons & the Judgem*. of the Bishopp in the case. We 
thought fitt for the preventing of further Inconvenience that might 
grow therevpon to send [our] message to the Corporacon that they 
would acquiesce in the choice of the said William Stewkley. Neverthe- 
lease we vnderstand that there some [sic] of the said Corporacon who 
still dissent from it, <& seem to make some doubt of the truth of our 
said message. We therefore calling to minde that we did authorize the 
delive'y of the said message, & being still desirous to p^veut disturbance 
& animosity that may arise by any further dissension in our said 
Corparacon concerning this Eleccon Have therevpon thought fit by theis 
our Royall Lres to lett you vnderstand that we did send you the s^ message 
for your acquiescing in the said Eleccon and we do hereby reiterate & 
confirme the same, Recommending it to all ptyes concerned that for the 
peace of the parish <^ your Corporacon, you do all acquiesce therein ft 
accept the said William Stewkley for Reader of the forementioned Parish 
Church according to the determinacon ft Licence of the said Bishopp

Some time ago I bought a boxful of old deeds mostly relating to 
Suffolk, but some also concerning Norfolk and Essex and Cambs. Of 
these the very oldest, as well as I can judge, is a deed of gift of land in 
Impington and Milton (1) Cambs. undated, and with the seal gone, 
copy of which, I think, may usefully find a place in the East Anglian, 

I should judge its date to be 11th or first half of 12th century, but 
have not been able in any books of mine to find anything about the 
grantor or grantee. Perhaps some East Anglian reader may be able to 
give some information.

The following extract from the twenty articles exhibited against Richard 
Watts, yicar of Chesterton, Cambs., appears to contain a reference tQ 
two persons of quality travelling in disguise : — 

*' Joseph Lynton deposed : About Shrove Monday last, Mr. 
Watts sent 2 soldiers towards Banbury, & sent Joseph Lynton hifll 
servant on purpose to direct them, that they should not come near 
Cambridge, nor keep any Road, lest they should meet with Parliament 
Troops. And I verilie believe that they went to the King's Army, 
& that they were Papists, for it being on a Friday at night, they would 
eat no flesh, notwithstanding that they provided flesh for me. But we 
desire that you would demand of Mr. Watts what they were, they were 
people of great worth, cfe they could not but be known to him, by reason 
of the great respect he gave them." 

The deposition was taken March 19, 164f. Mr. Watts was 
ordered by the Earl of Manchester to be ejected & sequestered, for 
being an enemy to Parliament A of scandalous doctrine. 

W. M. Palmkr. 


Pleas held at Cambridge on Monday next after the feast of the

of Cambridge, on the same day. And that Hugh Candelesby, and 


Bobert Stokhale were common malefactors at the house of Roger 
Herlaston, and sold his malt and other goods to divers men. Thej are

John his son, charged with the same oflfence. 

Another inquisition taken on the same day, on the oath of Thomas

carter, John Colchester, John Taverner, John Cayle, Richard Hynton, 
William Passer, Nicholas Potter, and Nicholas Potton. They say that

Also they say that Simon Hosier, and John Russell, with many 
other malefactoi-s rose up and despoiled the hospitium of Corpus Christi 
in Cambridge, broke the windows, doors and gates, and carried uway all 
the goods and chattels found in the said hospitium, to wit, on Saturday

Hosiere, Forbisshour Russell, Martin, Fulbum, Reffham, Draper, Cartere, 
Noreys, Litster, Barbour, and Deye, were indicted, but did not appear. 
The Sheriff was ordered to arrest them by Saturday after St. Peter ad 
Vinculam, who on that day answers that John Barbour, taverner, was a 
merchant and had gone away from the town for merchandise as his art 
required and not for any other reason, (fuit mercator et de villa ivit 
pro mercandinu suia fac* prout arte sua indiget) But Simon Hosier, 
and all the others had fled. 

Membrane 6, 

Cambridge. Pleas before Hugh la Zouch etc. Tuesday before St 

John Shirle of the county of Nottingham was arrested for being a 
vagabond through divers counties during the whole time of the 
insurrection, carrying lies and disagreeable stories (mendacia et frivola 
ineomoda) from county to county, by which the King's peace was broken 
and the populace disturbed. And amongst other * verba ruinosa,' to 
wit, after the King's proclamation of peace. had been made on the day 
above written, the King's justices being and sitting in Cambridge, he 
said, in a certain tavern in Briggestrete, where many were gathered 
together for the purpose of listening to his news and tales, < That his 
majesty's steward, the justices and many other of the King's officials 
and ministers, were as worthy to be hanged and to suffer pain and 
lawful torture as was John Ball capellanus' that traitor and felon 
lawfully committed. 'For' said he, 'John Ball was by the said 
ministers and with the King's assent, unjustly condemned to death, for 
this, that he was a true and upright man, prophesying things useful to 
the common people of the kingdom, and telling of numerous oppressions 


done on the people by King and ministers, and that his death would not 
pass unpunished, but in a short time, would be called to mind both by 
the King and his ministers ' which words and threats are greatly to the 
prejudice of the Crown, and manifest disquiet of the people. • 

Shirle was arrested by the Sheriflf and led before the justices sitting 
in Cambridge Castle, where he is diligently examined concerning his 
eoDTeraation, his sojourning and his condition. It is plain that he is of 
evil bearing and condition. Trustworthy people come and witness that 
he spoke the words imputed to him, which he cannot deny. Found 
guilty and hanged. 

Cant, By an inquisition on the same day it was found that Robert 
Beylham was one of the first to rise against the Prior of Barnwell, and 
made the mayor of Cambridge bestir himself in that design, to wit, on 
the Saturday, Sunday, and Monday after Corpus Christi 4 Rich. 2. 
Robert is taken and brought before the justices, but his trial is 
postponed to the next visit, when on Monday in the feast of St. Mary 
Magdalene he is found not guilty. 

Robert Stoc'hale was arrested because, it was presented that on 
Monday after Corpus Christi, after the Kings proclaimation, he burnt a 
dovecot of Roger de Herlaston at Cambridge, during the night "ao 
columbas de volatu columbar' predicti per chelas ne evaderent 
obstupavit," and that he was a notorious malefactor &c. And that on 
the Lord*8 day previous he, in company with others unknown, stole 
woollen bed clothes (pannos laneos eujusdeni lecti) price half a mark, and 
other goods and chattels from the hospitium of the said Roger, and on 
the same day broke into a certain house belonging to the same and stole 
a *coverlyt paled' blak and blu ' price 6». 

Stocushale pleaded not guilty and was acquitted. 

John Ryuell of Foulmere was accused of being a companion and 
aider of John Hauchach on Sunday after Corpus Christi, and of having 
appropriated and sold to his own use certain property of William 
Bateman. He owns that he was with Hauchach, but avers that it was 
hjr force, and through fear of his life. Found not guilty and acquitted. 

Membrane o (in dor bo), 

Robert de Lynn of Horaeheath, and John Golofre of Lyuton were 
arrested on suspicion during the time of the disturbance, and because 
they were seen in the society of John Hauchach, leader of the 
Dialefnctors who went against the manor of the Hospital of St. John at 
Dokeswurth, and the house of John Sybile at Horseheath, whilst many 
misdemeanors with destruction of houses, were done in that place 
by Hauchach and his allies, to wit on Friday and Saturday after Corpus 
Christi. And they remained in Cambridge Castle until now, when they 
are brought liefore the justices. They plead as did Rynell of Foulmere, 
and are acquitted. 

Simon vicar of Mildenhall was arrested by Henry English SherifT 


of Oambs. on suspioioD of insurrectiou during the time of the 
disturlxinoe, and at the oomplaiut of Ralph atte Wyk, because he, with, 
many other malefactors by him congregated, on Friday after Corpus 
Christi, came, in warlike manner arrayed to the house of Ralph at 
Newmarket, insulted him, and threatened him with beheading, and 
destruction of his dwelling, if he did not deliver up to him at 
Mildenhall the daughter of Ralph of Swaffham, lately by others 
abducted and by Ralph atte Wyke received — so Simon the vicar asserted, 
and forasmuch as Ralph was in no way guilty of this imputed to him, 
and the aforesaid vicar continued his malicious and iniquitous pleasure, 
Ralph paid him a fine to stand in his favour, to the great injury of 
Ralph, his wife and family, and manifest affright and disturbance of the 
whole town, and in contempt of the King's peace &o. Simon remaiaa 
in prison. 

Inquisition taken at Cambridge on the oath of John Curteys, John 
Pipere, Henry Attefield, John Colvyle, John Sharp, Nicholas Patton, 
John Watch, John Cayley, John Smyth, John Coupere, John Hadelee, 
and Ralph Walton, who say that on Saturday after Corpus Christi about 
10 o'clock, Richard Martyu, John Barbour, taverner, Robert Brighani, 
John Dey of Wivelingham, Thomas Forbour, John Russell, Richard 
Ash well, seriauut, and others, came to the house of William Bedell in 
Cambridge, broke into, and entered, the said house, and destroyed, or 
took away various goods found therein. 

Also they say that on the same day, about 11 o'clock at night, 
Richard Ashwell, Simon Hosier, Thomas Forbour, came with other 
malefactors to the College of Corpus Christi, broke into and entered 
their close, and destroyed or took away the goods and chattels found 
therein, and also feloniously broke the doors and windows. 

Also they say that on Sunday next John Reffham, Thomas Litster, 
and John his son, procured John Hauchach and other malefactors to lay 
waste the houses of John Blancepayu. 

And that on the same day, Simon Hosier, John Derabouth, Walter 
Croldsmyth, Thomas Baxtere, and John Dene, sold and took away the 
goods of Roger Harleston. 

And that on Friday after Corpus Christi, John Forbour rode into 
the country, and was at the death of the I^rd John Cavendish. 

Also that on Satui-day after (Corpus Christi, Henry Rande, John 
Apelton, John Russell, and John son of Richard atte Hatch *coteler^ 
rode out to John Hauchach and other malefactors at Shengeye and 
Stepel Mordon, and from these towns brought away a chalice, vestments 
and other clothes for beds, and hoi-ses. 

Also they say that on Monday after Corpus Christi, Simon Hosier, 
John Russell, John Noreys, Thomas Forbour, Thomas Litster and John 
his son, John Fulboum Skynner, and others, against the will of the 
mayor and other faitiiful men, went to Bernwell, broke into the prior's 
close, and laid waste and carried away his trees. 



And those indicted above are not captured except William: 
OoMemjib, aitas Walter Paunfield, who remains in custody. The' 
others are outlawed.

There is only one Wool Tax in the Public Record Ofl&ce referring 
to Cambs., and that is imperfect, referring only to the Hundreds of 
Armingford, Chilford, Chevely, and Radfield. It is dated in the 
catalogue 21 Edward iii., that is two years before the Black Death. A 
prominent feature of the tax is the large number of people rated, 
especially when compared with the Subsidy of a twentieth in 1327. 
A copy of both ratings fort he village of Abington-juxta-Shingay is given 
for comparison. In 1377, according to the Poll Tax return, there were 
in this village 78 people above the age of 14 years.

(Vol. v., p. 19.) 

" H. A. W." must, I think, add the following to complete the list 

of monumental inscriptions in Chattisham Church, unless they have been 

removed since 1883 . — 

1. The oldest existing inscription is on a stone in the chancel 
floor, whence the brasses of a man and his wife have been lost. A 
brass plate is engraven in Roman type. 

Here lyeth the bodye of Mary Re vers the | late wyfe of John 
Revers, who had isshve | iii Sonnes and vii Davghters : she dyed the | 
xii of September, Anno Domini 1592. | 

Below is another brass plate, shewing the children standing with 
hands joined in prayer, in two groups facing towards each other ; the 
boys in long coats and bareheaded, while the girls wear caps and are 
arrayed in long gowns secured at the waist by a knotted girdle. 

2. A stone on N. side of chanoel adjoining the Flacke inscriptions, 
and now partly covered by wood flooring : — 

[In Memory of Frances Ann Gentry (?)] who died 20*^ Nov>^. 1843 

Iaged 84 years. | Also | Daniel Gentry | who died Jany. 27*^ | 1867 
aged 83 years. 

The inscription on a tablet (now blank) on the south chancel wall 
IB thus given in the Fitch msb. at Ipswich Museum : — 

Infra banc parietem | Jacent cineres Ricardi Flacci de Chatt: Gene: 

I Qui sibi in uxorem | accepit Eliz : sororem | Gamaliel Accton olim | 

de Bramford generosi, | Per quam habuit tres | Filios et quatuor | Filias, 

etvitam reddidit | quinquagesimo sexto | SBtatis sue, AnnoSalutis 1650. | 

Belshford, H. W. BiRoa 



An Essex Pamphlet. — I have iu mj possession a 4to pamphlet of 
some 38 pages, entitled : — Essex | A Viewe of the State of the Clargie | 
Within the Countie of f^ex : | The substaunce whereof is readie to be 
proved at the Kinges Magesties pleasure wherein though many thinges 
be sett I doune to be uppon report, yet the same are to be proved | by 
wy tnesses of good credit | . 

It gives the value of livings, names of the preachers, and cites 
a number of cases, distinguished by numerals only, of " Ministers w^ be 
scandalous, whereof many double beneficed, manie noe preachers, and 
some non Residentes." 

I shall be glad of any particulars that are known of this curious 
and somewhat extraordinary work, apparently the "Report of a Com- 
mission," self-constituted or otherwise. 

Wormley^ Herts, W. B. Gbrish. 

' [Mr. Gerish's oamphlet is of very greftt interest to the Essex Bibliographer, and 
especially to any wno are careful to observe the state of Church affairs at about the 
close of the 17th century. No date is anywhere given, but reference to Newcourt's 
Repert4)riuM (which may be regarded as an early Clerical Directory, so far as the 
beneiSced Clergy are concerned in Essex and the old London Diocese), makes it dear 
that the pamphlet contains the substance of the returns in reply to Archbishop 
Whitgift's letter addressed to the Bishops in 1603. Similar returns may be found in 
respedi of the Archdeaconries of Suffolk and Sudbury in Proceedings of Svff. InsL of 
Archaology (Vol. vi., pp. 361-400), and in Norf Arekoedogy (Vol x., pp. 1-49, 166- 
184) for the Norwich Archdeaconry, and there are references to similar returns from 
other Dioceses, including London. Possibly the Essex Returns may be found included 
in Harl. Mss. 596.— Ed.J 

Wolsbt's Plate. — Can anyone inform me, if there are in existence 
any authenticated pieces of Plate belonging to the Cardinal ? and if so, 
where are they preserved ? 

W. E. Layton. 


Sir Robert Ourzon or Lord Curzon (p. 78). — In 13 Hen. vra. a 
dispute arose concerning the bounds of the liberties of the borough of 
Ipswich, ^' whereupon a Commission was directed to the Abbot of St, 
Edmundfbury, Robert Curzoriy Knt., Lord Curzon" etc. From this it 
appears that, in 1521-2, there was both a Lord Curzon and a Sir Robert 

The following note is an extract from the Will, dated 30 Mar., 
1573, and proved 3 Nov., 1573, at Ipswich, of Christopher Alderman, 
of Ipswich, Clothier: — "I Will and giue vnto xpofer ray svnne all 
that my Tente with thappurtenannces In whiche I now dwell, in the 
prishe of S^ Nicholas in Ippeswiche aforesayde nere to the place sometime 
the lordes Cursons."

(To be continued.) 

Thb Earlibst Guidb to Great Yarmouth. — I recently picked up 
on a London Bookstall, for the small sum of 2d., a very early, if not the 
earliest, * Guide to Great Yarmouth.' I had never met with a copy before 
(I believe the British Museum Library does not contain one), and as the 
little work must, horn its ephemeral nature and insignificant appearance 
be very scarce, I think it may be of interest if I give a slight 
description of the book, now just ninety years old. It is interesting to 
contrast it with the 'Guide Book ' of 1895. 

The work is a thin foolscap octavo, bound in marble covered boards 
with a blue papered back, and is not described in any way upon the 
cover. It contains some 68 pages, a map of the district, title page, 
and address; the paper on which it is printed being of the usuid 
excellent, if rough quality, pertaining to books of the period. Oo 


opening the book the title page just strikes the eye. At the top is a 
wood block representing (presumably) Yarmouth from some hilly 
elevation, as we only see the ocean with a couple of sailing boats upon 
it, while to the left is thp spire, the upper portion only, with a very 
pronounced vane, of St. Nicholas church. The chief feature of the 
landscape is the lower part of an oak in full foliage, in the shade of 
which, half-kneeling, is one of the early Saxon settlers, devoid of 
clothing, inscribing on a bo ard. 

Under this work of art is the title, which I give as printed : 

Historical Guide 


Great Yarmouth, 

in Norfolk, 

with the most remarkable events 

recorded of 

That Town 

And an accurate Sketch of the Estuary Hierus, 

with the Towns bordering thereon 

as taken a.d. 1000. 

Printed & sold by P. Forster, King Street, Yarmouth ; sold also 

by Bacon and Stevenson and Matchett, Norwich. 


On the left of this is the ** Sketch of the Estuary Hierus," consist- 
ing of a copper-plats engraving, taken I presume from some unacknow- 
ledged source (G. W. M. was the engraver) and is headed — 

The Entrance of the Hierus or Yare, with the course of that River 
<& the Towns bordering thereon a.d. 1000. Ex antiqua in Pergamen : 
delineatione illuminat : while at the foot thereof is repeated 
The Estuary as taken a.d. 1000. 

This Map is of great interest, if we may place any reliance upon 
its authenticity, showing as it does Yarmouth as a mere saud-bank, 
entitled " Cerdic Sand, now Yarmouth," with all the principal churches 
and castles on, or bordering upon, the estuary and the five tributary 
rivers. I believe that this map has been reprinted since. 

After a brief apologetic address or preface of some nine lines and 
dated Oct. 18th, 1806, the author, who was also 1 believe the printer and 
publisher, goes on to give a more or less authentic account of the origin 
and history of the town and neighbourhood ; he then devotes a 
paragraph to each of the principal places of interest in the town, these 


together fill some thirty-seven pages. On page 23 the author (presam- 
My) bursts into verse, his subject being " Yarmouth Beach/' and the 
poem consists of some thirty-four lines, written in a rather grandiloquent 
style. He next devotes four pages to the botany of the Denes. From 
page 38 to the end, we have " A Chronological and Historical Account 
of Remarkable Occurrences recorded in the Annuals of Yarmouth, these 
extend from a.d. 491 to 1806, the three last annual events consisting 
of brief accounts of the building and launching of ships of war — a 
branch of trade now quite extinct. 

Mr. C. J. Palmer, in his " Perlustration of Yarmouth," states that* 
Pexall Forster came from Ipswich in 1805, and purchased the business 
of James Black, bookseller, then carried on in the shop, corner of the 
Market Place, facing King Street In 1793 he married Miss Smith of 
Yarmouth. In 1808, Press Turner conveyed to him the house at the 
north-west corner immediately after puchasing it, but next year he 
became bankrupt. After this misfortune he was appointed Librarian of 
the Public Library, which office he filled for some years. In 1806 
Pexall Forster published the *' Historical Guide to Yarmouth," probably 
the first local publication of its kind. A third edition (which I possess), 
was printed for J. Barnes, bookseller. King Street-, in 1821. 

I have a list of Yarmouth guides, which I should be glad to render 
perfect. I should be gratefnl if any correspondents possessing such 
would favour me with copies of the title pages. 

Wormley, Herts. W. B. GsRiSH. 


In Blomefield's Hutory of N&rfoUc (Vol. v., p. 340) it is stated that 
Sir Henry de Riveshall married first, Helen, daughter and Coheir of 
William, the son of Walter de Hepworth, with whom he had a part of 
Hepworth Manor in Suffolk, and that after her death he married Amy, 
who in 1284 was his widow, and had as her dower one third of the 
Manor of Rushall in Norfolk. 

This statement is improved upon by Page in his Supplement to the 
Suffolk Traveller, who (pp. 772, 1011) states that Sir Henry de 
Riveshall married Helen, daughter and Coheir of William, son of Walter 
de Hepworth, with whom he had a part of the Lordship of Hepworth, 
and that after the decease of Helen he married Amy her sister, by 
which marriage he obtained another portion of this Manor, and that she 
was his widow in 1284 and had her dower in the third part of the 
Manor of Hepworth. 

I do not know what authority either Blomefield or Page had for 
these statements, but they both appear to be incorrect, indeed Page's 
statement is manifestly inaccurate on the face of it, as without noticing 
the improbability of Sir Henry de Riveshall marrying two sisters, it is 
clear his widow could not have in dower as his widow one third of the 



Manor, wheu Sir Henrj had only two shares, which were in fact two out 
of four shares in the entirety. The facts appear to be that Sir Henry 
de Riveshall did not marry any of the four daughters of William, 
son of Walter de Hepworth, but that he married Amy or Amisia the 
the widow of William the son of Walter of Hepworth, who was the 
mother of the four daughters. 

In the *'RegiBtrum Lahingheath (Harl, MSS, 743, fol. 86 b.^ 
under the heading " Evideutise pro patronata ecclesise de Hepworth," it 
is stated that the four daughters of William the son of Walter of 
Hepworth were Ellen or Helen, Susannah, Marcella and Agues, and that 
both Helen and Agues sold their shares in the Hepworth Manor to Sir 
Henry de Riveshall. Again, in Dary's MS,, in his notes on Hepworth, 
there is a copy of the fine levied in JHilary Term in the 3rd year of 
King Edward i. (1275), by which the sale by Helen, who was then the 
wife of Roger de Chaump, to Sir Henry de Riveshall was carried out^ 
and ftt>m this fine it would appear that Amisia, th^n the wife of Sir 
Henry de Riveshall, was entitl^ to dower out of these lands, as having 
formerly been the wife of William, the son of Walter de Hepworth, 
who was the father of Helen. 

This fine proves that Sir Henry de Riveshall was married to Aoiy 
or Amisia during the lifetime of Helen, and is quite inconsistent with 
the statements made by both Blomefield and Page.

The church is dedicated to St. Catherine, and now consists of 
chancel, nave, west tower, and south porch, mainly of Pependicular 
work, but with some remains of Decorated. A small window in N. wall 
is of still earlier (Norman) date, and has a pattern of intersecting arches 
in low relief on the stonework of its rounded head. The Tudor porch is 
of brick, with a 2 light unglazed opening on each side, and displays on 
its rounded gable the arms of Wingfield (differenced by a fleur de lys) 
impaling Foley, The octagonal Perpendicular font, placed opposite the 
aonth door, and raised on one step, has been very carefully restored. 
Upon its sides are carved these devices: — i. St. Catherine seated crowned, 
her wheel beside her ; ii. St. Mark's Lion with scroll ; iii. a Bishop's 
head, mitred ; iv. The Winged Man, St. Matthew's emblem ; v. a King's 
head, crowned and bearded; vi. St. Luke's Bull, with scroll; vii. a 
(grotesque head with protruded tongue; viii. the Eagle of St John. 
The shaft is supported by four crowned lions sejant, between as many 
buttresses. The font is fitted with an ancient wooden cover, roughly 
erocketted and painted stone colour. Four worm eaten benches retain 
their original position in the nave. They have good poppyheads carved 
with foliage of oak, pea, horsechesnut, &c. Two similar benches are 
now in the chancel, as well as an old carved oak chest. The elbows of 
the benches were adorned with seated figures of animals, but only a few 
melancholy hinder limbs now tell the tale. The pulpit and its octagon 

154 THE RAST anguan; or, 

sounding board are good examples of the Elizabethan period. There is 
but one bell in the tower, lettered MILES GRAY MADE ME 1618. 
The Royal Arms are painted on a hatchment, temp, " G.'^R." A piscina 
under a cusped ogee-head, and sedile formed by a lowered window sill, 
are to be seen south of the altar, which has its rail returned against the 
E. wall. 

The Parliamentary Visitor noted here an inscription "in Brass 
orate pro anirrui^ and 6 of the Apostles not defaced," — probably on a 
screen — " and St. Catherine and her wheel ; and 3 superstitious pictures 
more, 2 with Crosier Staves with Mitres ; and the Picture of St. George, 
St. Martin and St. Simon." These last were most likely in glass, and 
the leading of the tracery lights in a S. nave window appears still to 
retain the outlines of human figures, though the old glass has perished. 
A few small fragments of Perpendicular glass still however linger in 
some of the nave windows. In the N. wall of chancel there is a large 
shallow square recess, but no monument in it. The earliest memorial 
is a small brass figure, 1 7 inches long, of a knight, in the nave floor. 
He is clean shaven, bareheaded, with long hair parted in the centre and 
flowing to the shoulder. His plain globular cuirass has four taces, 
depending from which are two tuiles with a small plate betweeu them. 
Below is a skirt of ring mail, which defence is also visible at the neck. 
The pauldrons are as usual of unequal size, and coudieres or elbow plates 
large. A heavy sword hangs at his left side, and on his right a dagger 
or misericorde. Sabbatons of fashionably ugly make encase his feet, 
adorned with large spurs. His hands are bare and joined in prayer. 
The inscription is lost, and there were no shields of arms by which to 
identify the figure, whose armour is of date c. 1500, and coarsely 
executed. It probably represents one of the Wentworths who acquired 
the property in 1450, and held it for several generations. On N. side 
of the chancel floor a ledger stone has this shield incised : Wing fields 
difierenced by a fleur de lys, as on the porch, impaling Foley : with this 
inscription : — 

Here lyeth Alice Poly | late the wife of Thomas | Wingfeilde 
Esqvier, who | w(t$ buried* the fovrth | day of September | Anno 
Domini | 1629. | 

Next to this is a similar stone for her husband 

Here lyeth the body | of Thomas Wingfeld Esq. | who died the 15 
of Jvly I 1632. I 

In the wall above is a tablet from which the inscription panel is 
missing, leaving only its border with this motto 
Sve alis altissimi alti. 

It is surmounted by a helmet carved on a bracket, bearing a wreath 
&rg- & giii fti^d a curious cylindrical object as crest much like a modem 
silk hat) per pale ermines and arg. encircled by a strap gu., buckled or, 

• Corrected into or from " who dyed.** 


between two wings erect, dexter arg., sinister ermines. It would be 
interesting to know what inscription was on this monuuient. 

In the same wall, east of the aboTe is a monument with two 
marble demi-figures represented with right hands clasped together, 
beneath a classic pediment supported by pillars. The male figure wears 
moderately long hair, small pointed beard and moustache ; the lady has 
a head-dress of loose drapery, beneath which her hair is worn in curls. 
Her left hand rests on her bosom. Under the figures in engraven

between two cotises az. Sayer, (In Page's " Suffolk " the coat is described 
as Gu. on a bend or cotised m , three cinquefoils of the last.) 

The Wentworths sold the manor in 1643 to a citizen of London 
who was buried here under a stone in the chancel, inscribed as follows : — 

Here lyeth ye Body of William | Lodge, Esq. of Nettellsted [ Hall, 
who dep*«^ this life the | 6*»» day of Avgvst, Ann^ Diii | 1653. | Here 
lyeth also Interred the | Body of William Lodge Gent., | Grandson to 
the aboue named | William Lodge, who | Departed this Life the | Third

Adjoining this is another marble ledger slab ; —

Lodge of I Nettlestead in the County | of Suffolke Gent, who | Departed 
this life the 11^ day | of October 1696. |

Here lyeth the body of | W* Judith Conn of Lond. | Widdow, who

Aged 65 yeares. | 

In the centre of the chancel pavemeut there is a large black marble 
Btone with this inscription ; — 

Here lieth the Body of { Stephen Jackson | of Ipswich | who died 
September 10, 1818 | Aged 71 Years. | Also of Elizabeth his | beloved 
Wife, Daughter of | Thomas and Eleanor Postle | of St. Mary's Norwich. 
I She died April 16, 1816 | Aged 69 Years. | 

A mural tablet on the south wall is to another of this family ; — 

In memory of | the Reverend Stephen Jackson m.a. | of | Gonville 
and Caius College, Cambridge, | 23 years Rector of this Parish. | He 
departed this life | the 4*»» day of January 1838, | aged 52. | 


In the churchyard are other Jackson memorials. A tall crosB is 
erected to Stephen Jackson of Ipswich (1855), who gave the modem 
Decorated east window, a representation of which, with a pair of 
compasses, and initials S. J. is seen on a shield on the monument Two 
other shields display respectively the Cross, Nails and Crown of Thorns ; 
and the arms of Jackson impaling Cobbold. This memorial bears also 
the ancient prayer, ** On whose soul Jesu have mercy." 


This church is a small plain building in Decorated style, consisting 
of chancel, nave with west tower and open timber porch on S. side. In 
the tower hang two bells, 


Most of the furniture of the church is modem, but the original plain 
octagonal font remains, raised o]i one step. There is no chancel arch 
nor screen, but the old doorway to the roodloft staircase is to be seen in 
the north wall. The reredos is formed of post-Reformation carved oak, 
and adorned with paintings of Mosses and Aaron. A painting of the 
Hoyal Arms of " C.^ R." hang in the church, and there is also a smaller 
representation of the date of George iii. There are no monuments in 
the church, but a hatchment suspended on the wall, placed by a widow 
for her husband, shews the shield of Bacon^ impaling Arg. semee of

of these ornaments are now to be found. There is however a figure 
of the B. v. M. and Child of no great age in the east window. Near 
the Perpendicular priest's door in the chancel is a mural tablet thus 
inscribed : —

Being about to issue a supplement to my "Index to Norfolk 
Topography/' which will contain some thousands of new references, 
amassed since the publication of that work, I wish to add to it as 
perfect a list as I can get together of all Norfolk place-names. Possibly 
the readers of the East Anglian may not be indisposed to help me by 
revising and adding the names of any rivers, becks, brooks, waters 
and meres, and of any hills and mounds not mentioned in the following 
lists. Can anyone tell me what authority Walter White, in his Eastern 
England (p. 157), had for saying there was a district in West Norfolk 
called Filand ?

Jbrhtn of Rushbrooke. — Sir Thomas Jermyn of Rushbrooke was 
M.p. for Bury St. Edmund's from 1621 till disabled in 1644. Was he 
al«) the "Sir Thomas Jermyn Kn*" who represented Andover 1604 — 11 
and Suffolk in 1614, or was the latter m.p. his father of the same name? 
The elder Sir Thomas was certainly the "Thomas Jermyn, Esq., m.p. for 
Sudbury in 1588 — 9, being knighted by the Earl of Essex before Rouen 
in 1591. What is the date of his death? Sir Thomas, jun., made k.b. 
at the (coronation of James i. in July 1603, was buried at Rushbrooke 
7th January, 1644—5, aged 72. 

Sir Robert Jermyn, father of the elder Sir Thomas was, I presume, 
the Knight of that name who received that honour " in the progresse " 
at Bury St. Edmund's 1st Aug., 1578, and who afterwards represented 
Suffolk in Parliament between 1584 and 1589. He is said to have died 
circa 1601. Who then was "Sir Robert Jermyn of Suffolk" knighted 
at Royston in Nov. 1604 ? Also " Sir John Jermyn of Suffolk " knighted 
by Edward vi. in 1547 ? The last bore arms similar to those of Sir 
Ambrose of Rushbrooke, who was knighted by Queen Mary in 1553, 
and seemingly quartered those of Heveningham. 

160 THB BAST ANGUAN ; 09, 

Thomas Jermyn, eldest son of Sir Thomas, who died in 1645, is 
sometimes styled " Knight," but I find no record of his creation. He 
was colleague with his father in the representation of Bury St. Eklmund's 
in the Long Parliament, and died 11th Nov., 1659. 

I should be much obliged to any correspondent who may have 
access to better genealogical particulars of this family than are within 
my reach, for information upon these points.

Roman-ditty {or diddy). — In Ipswich a Papist is never known

Suffolk Vbrsionb of Two Old Ballads. — There are, or were 
till recently, two ballads current in Suffolk that are well worth preserving. 
The first is the well-known '^ Hugh of Lincoln '' ; the second, familiar to 
us through Percy's " Eeliqties" is the " Blind Beggar of Bethnal Green." 
In the Suffolk version of the latter, each verse closed with the retrain, 
" the pretty Bessie." These ballads were sung on different occasions ia 
parts of *high' Suffolk, such as harvest-homes and Christmas gatherings. 
Both songs differed considerably from any printed versions. I shall be 
grateful to any one who can furnish a copy (collected orally) of either. 
I may say that a similar inquiry was made by " Presbyter " in the 
Suffolk Notes and Queries which appeared in the Ipswich Journal in 
Stounnarket, Suffolk. Chablbs S. Pabtriogb. 


Sir Robert Curzon or Lord Curzon (p. 78, 144). — To my mind, 
the words show very plainly that upon the Commission (p. 144), was 
one Curzon only. The Christian name of Lord Curzon would have been 
given had he been some one else than the Sir Robert just mentioned. 
It is scarcely necessary to say more, but having the means at hand, I 
will cite the following : —

Maldon — Hetbridoe verms Colchester. 

Having just finished a perusal of Mr. Chalkley Gould's pamphlet, 
on "The Site of Camulodunum, or Colchester veraiis Chesterford" 
(London : E. Marlborough & Co.), I think some of his arguments can 
be made use of in favor of my own theory, that Camulodunum was at 
Maldon or Hey bridge and not at Colchester. 

Notwithstanding the array of great names cited by him as 
authorities in favor of Colchester, I remain of the same decided opinion 
that the Maldon site was the correct one, and that Colchester is the 
atuxessor and not the rival of Maldon. 

In the August, 1894, number of The East Anglian, Vol. v., 308-10, 
I suggested a new site for investigation for the site of Camulodunum, 
on what was (according to Norden's map of Essex), formerly an island 
in the Black water river, but is now apparently* joined to the main land 
on the north bank of it, and may be now a portion of Heybridge, where 
Roman remains have already been found ; but no Essex, or other 
archeeologist has taken up the matter, at which I am disappointed ; but 
perhaps no one has sufficient faith in my. surmises to act upon them ; 
and as the new Maldon ians on the south bank may have no part or lot 
in it, in future it may perhaps be best to call Heybridge the site of 

Perhaps I cannot do better than comment on Mr. Gould's paper 
page by page as I see opportunely, for notes on what he says : — 

(p. 5.) I quite agree that Camulodunum was deserted by the 
Romans after its destruction by Boadicea ; and in my August paper I 
stated that they abandoned it in favor of Colchest^, which thenceforth 
became the chief city and garrison of south-east Britain. 

(p. 6.) Although the town was thus abandoned by the Romans 
after its destruction, it by no means follows that it was by the Britons ; 
but it was certainly not a Roman Station afterwards, when visited by 
Hadrian and Antoninus, a.d. 120; but (as I suggested) they wished on 
that journey to see the sites of the capital city (although in ruins) taken 
by Claudius and Plautius, and also of the camp of Plautius (wherever 
it may be), and also the locality of the subsequent battle when Boadicea 
and the Britons were defeated. 

The town mentioned by Plolemy was no doubt the Heybridge site. 
But Neuniiis in his mention of Cair-CoUon, meant undoubtedly 
Colchester. The Saxons knew Colchester as Colon ia-ceaster, i.e., the 
Colonia of Iter v., not Camulodunum of Iter ix., although it had been 
in early days a colony of veteran soldiers, and previously to its 
destruction, the capital of the province, but clearly a place other than 
Camulodunum and visited in a different and distinct journey. 

(p. 7) As Sir J. Evans says, Camulodunum (Heybridge) being 
once established, did remain (i.f., with a slight removal of the population, 



if any, to the south bauk of the river at the new Saxon Maldon) as a 
centre down to our own times. The great and serious mistake of many 
writers has been the joining together of the two distinct Havennas 
names of Colonia and Camulodunum in one as Colonia-Camulodnum, 
and then assigning it to Colchester. But it is clear from the Itinerary 
that the two places were separate and distinct, and one the successor 
of the other. 

Mr. Gould's first argument (A).is founded on the assumption that 
Camulodunum is Colchester, and therefore continued of importance 
during the whole time of the Roman occupation. But I say that it 
was Colonia (Colchester) which, as the successor of Camulodunum, 
oontinued of importance, as it was intended to do ; and from Colcliester 
plenty of direct roads, military and otherwise, can be pointed out (aa 
Mr. Laver would be able to show), leading to the other chief centres of 
the island. But there i& a road which has been very much overlooked, 
but is very important ; and this is what may be called the new Ickneild 
way. The old British way we know ran from Caistor (and perhaps from 
the sea), by Bury St. Edmund's, Royston, Baldock, Dunstable, Iveinghoe, 
£welm (where it is called the Lower Icknield way), crossing the 
Thames at Basildon (not at Goring) and on by Thatcham, High Clere, 
Weyhill (Waybill), and Andover, to Sarura. But the Romans when 
they established Garionium made a new way, which entirely superseded 
the old Ickneild way as a military way, and left it to be used only by 
the country people as a pack-horse way (and sometimes pilgrims' way 
to Bury St Edmund's) ; and between Ewelm and Basildon it seems to 
have been entirely neglected and forgotten. The Roman new way, 
however (which we shall find developes into the Hampshire Portway), 
appears to have rurf by Bungay, Eye, Stowmarket (Sitomagus), Clare, 
Ridgwell (Combretonium), where it crossed the Via Devana, Thaxsted, 
Bishop Stortford (where it met the Staue Street from Colchester), Ware, 
Hatfield, St Albans, Amersham, High Wycomb, Hambledon, Henley 
(Tamesoe), Reading (Caleva), Silchester (Ardaoneon), St Mary Bourne, 
and so on to Sarum, as is now well known ; thus superseding the old 
line of British road to Sarum — ^Another branch of this Portway (and 
which in some places still retains this name), ran from St Albans by 
Great Berkhampsted, Richboro', Watlington (where it goes by the name 
of Upper Icknield way, but is mentioned by Dr. Guest [ii., 191, n. 2], 
as Grims-dvke), crossing the Thames below Wallingford, past Wantage 
(where it bears the name of Eccleton or Portway), Shrivenham (where 
it crosses the Salt way), Purton (Port town), Malmsbury, Wickwar, to 
Aust and Old Passage on the Severn. 

(p. 8.) (B). No doubt the physical aspect mentioned was the 
inducement to the Romans to erect their new fortress and capital near 
Lexden, an old station of the Britons ; but whether it was the capital 
of Cunobeline and the Trinobantes may be questioned. 

(p. 9.) It is probable that the Romans thought the colony of 


veterans at Camuloduuum was suffident to awe the Britons, without 
walls; but when Boadicea had so ruddy undeceived them, they 
considered it necessary to provide garrisoned fortresses and centres 
such as Colchester, Verulam, Winchester, Dorchester, Cirencester, 
Chester, Bicester, and many others, Silchester was later, a.d. 353; 
Caleva was also unwalled, and consequently utterly destroyed, but its 
remains may yet exist at or near Theale (Raeiding). It seems not very 
dear how Tacitus leaves little room for doubt that British Camulodunum 
and Roman Colonia were one and the same spot. No doubt the veterans 
led to Camulodunum and settled upon the conquered lands did thrust 
out the people from their houses and drive them from their lands, but 
this does not prove that those houses and lands were at Colchester. 

(p. 10.) It does not appear where the Vatican inscription was 
found ; but the many named Proconsul seems to have been the Registrar 
of the Roman citizens of the colony of veterans, which was in Britain 
at Camulodunum (N.B. Cama). (In passing, where was the Normentan 
Way f) Now unless we accept as fact that Camulodunum and Colonia 
were one and the same place, the whole argument for Colchester fails. 

(C) The estuary or mouth of the Thames must be taken for the 
Black water river ; and all that is said about the portents in the river, 
oonld have been witnessed from the island city in the midst of the river. 

(p. 11) (D) My idea of the Antonine Itineraries is, that they are 
actual after notes of journeys made by the Emperor Hadrian and 
Antoninus himself, in the capacity of aid-de^^amp or secretary (or both) 
to the Emperor, of whom he was afterwards the son-in-law and his 
snccessor in the Empire ; and that these notes were afterwards arranged 
by him and then made public ; and it is remarkable that in some copies 
of the Itinerary he is styled Emperor and Augustus, but not so in all, 
showing that the publication was first made before he was himself 
Emperor — and so far as my experience extends, accuracy may be 
confidently looked for most remarkably; for on comparison of the 
distances given in the Itinerary with the Ordnance map (making 
allowance for the difference between Roman and English miles), when 
proper places are selected for the sites, the correspondence is quite 
marvellous; a few errors can be detected and pointed out, but they 
appear to be those of copyists and not of the original ms. 

(p. 12.) By my theory the great road between Colchester and 
London wUl fit in with the fifth Iter rather than the ninth. 
Reversing the order we have London with a straight road from Staines 
to Colchester, passing through the present city outside the old walls by 
Oxford Street and Old Street, over Old Ford to Stratford, where a 
branch from the old City joins it; then by Ilfbrd and Romford to 
CsBsaromagus at Widford will be just the distance of 28 miles from the 
city ; and Colonia at Colchester at the proper distance of 24 miles from 
Widford. For Duro-Litum on the ninth Iter, in which the 
Emperor and his Secretary were visiting the capital and some of the 


sites of the exploits of Boadicea aud the Britons, we must look among 
the Lejtons and Loughtons and £pping and Ambresburj. I am unable 
at present to place Canonium, for I cannot hear of anj encampment, 
9 miles south of Camuloduuum, large enough to contain all the legions 
of Plautius. 

(p. 13.) Notwithstanding all the Celtic and British significations, 
I believe Combretonium to be Ridgwell, where the Via Devana crosses- 
the Portway. Sitomagus seems self-evident in Stowmarket. Thetford 
was on a road from Norwich to Newmarket and Cambridge and Rojston.

At the time of the death of Sir Henry de Riveshall (see p. 151 
anU\ his son and heir, John de Riveshall, was an infant, and accordingly 
the Abbot of Bury St. Edmund's as the superior lord of whom the 
Hepworth estate was held and the guardian of the infant heir, took 
possession of the estate, and for the purposes of the guardianship an 
extent of the manor and lands at Hepworth which formed the property 
of Sir Henry de Riveshall was taken. A copy of the extent appears 
in the ms. known as " Registrum W. Pinchbeck," in the University 
Library at Cambridge (Cam. Mss. Ee iii. 60. fo. 202), and is as follows : —

With regard to the various names of places and fields mentioned 
in the above extent, the greater part are now wholly unknown at Hepworth. 
The field described as containing 11 acres juxta Brockeleye, is clearlja field 
near the existing wood, still called <* Brocklej Wood," the greater part 
of which lies just outside the parish of Hepworth. Walsham of course 
refers to the neighbouring parish of Walsham le Willows, and I think 
that Brunescroft must mean one of the enclosures now known as 
Bumscotes. There are also several fields in Hepworth now known as 
Bretts, and Great and Little Bretts.

Fleas held at Cambridge on Monday in the feast of St. Mary 
Magdalen, b Rich. ii. 

Cant. John Gibonn of Cambridge junior was arrested on suspicion of 
being a notorious insurrector and malefactor in town and country, 
during the time of the disturbance and ruin. And afterwards by divers 
inquisitions it was found that he, with other malefactors, broke into the 
parish church of St. Mary, Cambridge, on Sunday after Corpus Christ! 
during parish mass, and feloniously broke a chest full of jewels and 
utensils, and took of John Gilx)nn senior lOs., for letting that chest 
alone, to the prejudice of the King, and disturbance of the priest 
celebrating mass, and the parishioners in the church. And that he on 
the same day entered the close of the Friars Carmelite at Cambridge, 
and there broke open a chest with Jewels and money (libris) inside it, 
and took those goods away to the prejudice of Holy Church. The value 
is not known, but it is estimated to be 20 pounds. And that he was one 
of the rebels against the mayor, Edward Litster, and was a common 
malefactor in town and country. And that on the same day he rode, to 
the manor of Thomas Hasildon with a hundred horsemen of evil society, 
gathered together for pulling down the buildings of the said manor, and 
perpetrating depredations and other evil deeds. And that he encouraged 
the malefactors in the evil deeds which were done there to wit, the theft 


of goods and chattels and the destruction of buildings to the damage of 
a thousand pounds, to the prejudice of his majesty and manifest 
disturbance of the people. And that he ^as a constant maintainor of 
divers malefactors gathered together in the said time, in various places 
in the country to the prejudice of the King. Being brought before the 
justices he acknowledge having been in the fields of Mordon with other 
men, but denies breaking into the church or rebelling against the 
mayor. But John Gibonn senior was called as a witness against him, 
and he was found guilty and hanged.

down the houses of Thomas Haseldon at Steple Morden. And it will 
be seen on Roll 3 that he has already been outlawed. 

And the same inquisition says that Robert Randesson of West 
Wrattyng on Saturday after C. O. with others unknown, burnt the 
Court Rolls of the Priory of Ely at West Wrattyng. And that Robert 
Howell, and Richard Howell of Balsham on the same day broke into 


the close of the Bishop of Ely at Balsham and feloniously burnt his 
€0urt rolls and other muniments found there. They all three appeared

to the prejudice of the crown and oppression of the people. And by 
the same inquisition it is testified that all the aforesaid felons are 
beheaded in the county of Huntingdon for insurrection there. 

And another inquisition taken at Cambridge says that on the same 
Sunday, John Scot of Milton came with other men to LoUworth, to the 
house of John Sigar, and threatened Mabel his wife saying that he

of Cambridge on Sunday after Corpus Christi, and coerced the mayor, 
Edward Redniedwe, to make a proclamation against the Prior of 
Barnwell. And that during the whole time of the insurrection after 
the said day, they were aiders and abettors in continuing the insurrection 
to the prejudice of the King. The Sheriff is ordered to arrest them. 

The jury of the hundred of Pappworth and Northstowe present

Cambridge in Briggestrete, with many other unknown malefactors, came 
of malice aforethought to the house of Roger son of Richard Blannk- 
grene, and sought to slaj him, and thej did not find i)im there, but 
immediately went to the church of St. Giles, Cambridge, and there 
assaulted the said Roger, and would have beheaded him if it had not 
been for the parishioners in the church at the same time preventing 
him. And upon thus continuing his malice, he went back to Roger's 
house to pull it down, when the wife of the said Roger, on her knees, 
offered him a fine for having his peace and favour, in contempt of the 
King and to the pernicious example of others. And the said John is 
arrested and tried. Roger son of Richard aforesaid, Richard Chamber-

CotTNTT Records. — I find that the Conveyances inrolled before the 
Clerk of the Peace of Norfolk commence in 156¥.. I am anxious to 
know whether those for Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex exist, and 
the date of the earliest. 

There is some account of the deeds inrolled within the County of 

s, in the tenth report of the Historical Manuscripts Commission, 1885. 

TRie Norfolk series of Inrollments of Deeds is fairly perfect for upwards 

of a century, and consists of about four hundred and fifty membranes.

Barker's Bible. — A few years ago one of my former pupils, then 
at Trinity College, Cambridge, bought at a second-hand book shop a copy 
of Barker's Bible, printed in 1617. On the blank page at the end of 
the Apocrypha is written: — "Memorand, this Booke was bought the 
Eleventh day of December And in the yeare of our lord god 1630. And 
brought to the Church the next day flFoUowing being Sunday ffor the 
Curate to Read In. Richard Browne, Churchwarden." To what parish 
did this Bible belong ?

BiGOD Ballad (p. 59). — I am indebted to the courtesy of £dward 
A. Fitch, Esq., Editor of The Essex Review^ for some valuable notes on 
the query respecting the second line : — 

" The King has sent for Bigod bold, 
In Essex whereat he lay." 

The allusion may be to either Great Chesterford or Laindon Hills. 
Mr. Fitch quotes Salmon's EsseXy 135, 316 ; Morant's EsseXy u., 554 ; etc. 

Stowmarket, Suffolh Charles S. Partridge. 



The Church (St. Mary) now consists of long chancel, clerestoried 
nave, north chapel and vestry, and a square tower containing five bells, 
at south-west comer of the nave, beneath which is the principal entrance 
to the church. There are some small remains of Saxon work, but the 
main body of the present church appears to be early Decorated, with 
clerestory, chapel, and several of the windows of Perpendicular date. 
The tower is evidently an addition to the original plan, as the niche for 
the patron's image is above the inner doorway instead of its usual place 
over the outer entrance. Mr. Will. Dowsing had a busy time when he 
came here Jan. 22, 1643, and must needs give us a taste of his 
scholarship in concluding his gleeful account of havoc wrought : — " We 
brake down the 12 Apostles in the Chancel, and six superstitious more 
there ; and 8 in the Church, one a Lamb with a Cross X on the back ; 
and digged down the steps ; and took up 4 superstitious Inscriptions of 
brass, one of them Jeiu Fill Dei^ miserere meiy and mater Dei^ m^m^nto 
meiy — mother of God have m^cy on me/" 

The chancel roof is modem, but that spanning the nave is ancient, 
with sixteen figures of angels with wings outspread on the hammer- 

The roof of the north chapel is also old, ceiled between the 
moulded principals. A stone staircase from what is now the vestry, 
east of the chapel, communicated with the rood-loft. Loft and screen 
are both gone, but some traceried panels carved and gilt under the 
modern pulpit probably belong to the latter. A good old Perpendicular 
screen of carved oak, however, still remains, dividing the chapel, which 
belongs to Shrubland Hall, into two parts. A four-light window in 
this part of the church was brought here when the old hall was 
demolished. The muUions and frame are of terra-cotta, embellished 
with scrolls, masks, and foliage, with a representation of a wheel over 
each light. 

In the chancel are a piscina and aumbry, and a Caroline reredos 
of oak, panelled in geometric pattems, bearing date 1643, with a 
painting of the Ascension over the altar. The altar rail is also richly 
carved with dolphins and cherubs playing musical instruments, dated 
ANNO 1 700. The font is octagonal, plain, and of clumsy appearance. 
A few old benches remain, with carved poppy heads. Parts of the old 
oak pews have been worked up in the recent seat work, one bench-door 
being formed out of a panel with roughly incised shield, with initials 
and date, F. B. 1692. 

In north wall of chancel is a low marble tomb in a canopied recess, 
showing indent of brass to a knight, in the exaggerated style of armour 
temp, Richard m. There was a border inscription, and also three shields 
of arms on the front of the tomb, but all the brass has been removed. 


178 THE BAST anouan; or, 

The crocketed canopy is supported on each side by a slender shaft 
terminating in a pinnacle, the cusps of the arch worked into small 
angelic figures bearing shields. This is supposed to commemorate 
Rich. Booth, Esq., who married the heiress of Philip Oke, or it may be 
to his son, who died in the reign of £d. iv. The spandrels of the 
canopy are filled in with sprays of oak, displaying a boar's head, the 
Booths' cognizance, while the acorns and branches of oak carved about 
the monument seem to refer to the alliance with the Oke family. 

On the floor, in front of this monument, lies a large marble slab 
whose brass has also suffered at the spoiler's hand, the figures of a 
daughter and two sons, as well as a representation of (?) the Holy 
Trinity having been lost. 

Bound the margin of the slab runs a fillet with this inscription : — 

(1) lii Orate pro aia Roberti Sowthwell armig'i (2) apprenticij ad 
leges et vni' lusticiarior' ad pacem dni Regis 'uand' (3) et pro aia 
Cecilie Txoris eius Vni' filiaru Thome Sheryngton (4) Armig'i dum vixit 
de Barssehm defuncti. (5) Qui quidem Rob'tuo obijt xxvii*" die 
Septembris, Anno Dni Millmo (6) quingentesimo xiiii*. Quorum alabus 
propioietur de' Amen. 

The six shields disposed amid the lettering are thus charged : 
I. and IV. (arg.) 3 cinquefoils (gu.) each charged with 6 annulets (or), 
Southwell, XL and V. Quarterly, 1st. and 4th. (gu.) 2 crosses pattee in 
pale (or between 2 flanches chequy (arg. and sa.) Sheringttm ; 2nd. and 
3rd. (az.) a bend (arg.) .... III. and VI. SotUhwell impaling SkeringUm 
quartered as above. 

The figures are turned slightly towards each other, Robert 
Southwell is habited in a long fur lined gown reaching to the feet, with 
wide fur edged sleeves, slightly open in front and showing an under 
tunic reaching to the knee and confined at the waist by an ornamental 
belt. The hair is worn flowing to the shoulder. I^is low shoes are 
fastened by a strap at the instep. The lady wears a close fitting gown 
with collar and cuffs of fur, and purflod with the same at the foot, where 
it is arranged in conventional folds. The waist is encircled by a girdle 
with two decorated clasps from which a pendant hangs by a chain. The 
head-dress is of the " kennel " shape with long lappets falling nearly to 
the waist A small piece of the lady's forehead is broken away, and the 
male figure is cracked across the chin. 

A square brass plate on a neighbouring stone is inscribed : — 

Here lyeth the bodye of Francis Sovthwell the wife of | Robert 
Sovthwell gent., the eldest davghter of Thomas | Hynson of Tavistock 
in y« covtie of Devon Esq. w<^^ Francis | had issve 3 sones and 4 
davghters, | John, Thomas & Robert, | Francis, Margaret, Svsan and 
Anne. She lyved a godly | life beloved of all people, and dyed in y« 
trve fayth of | Christ y« 23^* of January 1607. uEtatis sve 29. | 

notes' and qubribb, etc. 179 

Against the north chancel wall is erected a large altar tomb in 
honour of another of this family ; it is built of coloured marbles, and is 
surmounted by a recumbent figure of John Southwell, arrayed in a 
doublet fastened down the front with a row of little buttons ; puffed 
trunk hose and loose breeches buttoned down to the knee, where they 
are finished off with bows. His high heeled shoes are furnished with 
rosettes at the instep. He wears moustache and small pointed beard, 
hair moderately long, and a broad collar falling over the doublet. On 
his left, turned towurds her husband, and supporting herself on her right 
elbow, lies his wife, a full-faced matron in the spreading petticoat of the 
time, which has to be somewhat modified to suit the sculptor's require- 
ments. The dress is cut square at the neck, showing the vandyked edge 
of an undergarment, the neck and wrists furnished with ruffs. The 
head dress is a close coif with vandyked border concealing the hair 
except just above the ears, and over this is worn a hood with lappets 
depending some way below the shoulder. She wears a sleeveless mantle, 
open in fh)nt, and holds a skull in her left hand. 

Behind the tomb is a pediment supported on two pairs of columns, 
with a panel between them inscribed in Roman capitals : — 

This monument is sente over 
land by &". Richard Sovthwell K^ 

from the Cittie of Limrick in Ire I 
second sonne of Jo^ Sovthwell of 

Barham Esq. and Margrett his | wife as a pious remembrance of | them 
to be left to their posterity. | An® Do 1640. | 

Above is placed a shield with arms of Southwell impaling SheringUm^ 
as they appear on Robt Southwell's brass. The crest does not appear 
on any monument, but on an ancient gateway to Barham Hall the arms 
are surmounted by a squirrel sejant as crest. 

Part of the parish of Barham belongs to the Shrubland estate, and 
consequently some of the earlier members of that branch of the Bacon 
&mily lie here, in a mortuary chapel north of the chancel, now used as 
a vestry. An altar tomb in the middle of the vestry commemorates 
Edward, third son of Lord Keeper Bacon, and is described with its 
heraldic shield in Bast Anglian^ Vol. rv., p. 49, where also is an account 
of the tablet to Penelope Bacon on the east wall. The principal shield 
on this latter monument displays the arms of Bacon quartering Quaplode^ 
a martlet for difference ; impaling MannodL The arms of husband and 
wife are repeated separately on smaller shields. A stone in the 
chancel floor bears an inscription to another of this family : — 

Anthony Bacon, Master of | Artes and preacher of Qod's | word 
dyed the 6 of April | in the 31^ year of his age. Anno | Domini 1629. | 
TtoA stone is much worn, as is a slab of similar character on the 
south side, which is carved with this shield, six escallops, 3, 2, and 1. 

Here lyeth the body of Mrs. | EUynor Methwould who | departed 
this life the 3^ of | Aprill 1656. | 


The following seven inscriptions to the Fynn, Haughfen, and Dove 
families, are engraven upon ledger slabs in the nave floor : — 

Here Resteth the Body of | Robert Fynn who departed j this life 
the 15*^ of November | Anno Dom: 1677 | aged 69. |

A marble tablet in the north wall over the Shrublaud pew displays 
this emblazoned shield :— Quarterly of eight; firat MiddUton ; second 
arg. three grey hounds ; courant in pale sa. ; third sa. a star of six 
points arg. ; fourth gu. a lion ramp. arg. in a bordure or ; fifth arg. a

thus charged : Mtddleton quartering ActoUy Fowle, and Lee ; impaling 
Cnst quartering Brorvnlow, 

The inscription runs : —

€8tate8 of Baptist Lee Esquire, comprising Livermere Park and Lawshall 
in the County of | Suffolk and a large property in London. Her 
Christian virtues were justly honored and cherished by those who 
enjoyed the | blessing of her parental affection, and by all who dwell 
with grateful recollection on her warm friendship and active | 
benevolence. Her life was passed in the practice of the duties that 
religion enjoins, and was closed in the hopes that it inspires. | Here are 
also deposited according to his desire by the side of his loved mother, 
the remains of | Sir William Fowle Fowle Middleton Bart. | who died on 
the 2^ of May 1860 in the 76^ year of his age ; | inheriting the estates 
of both his father and mother, he resided in this parish at Shrubland 
Park, I which it was his pleasure and occupation to improve and adorn, 
giving constant employment to the poor around, | and was ever anxious 
to promote the welfare of his dependants by whom he was greatly 
esteemed and respected. | His warmth of heart and high integrity of 
character rendered his loss deeply felt by all his relations and friends. | 
He married August 2^^ 1825 Anne Cust daughter of Brownlow and 
Frances Loixi and Lady Brownlow. | Their union was blessed for nearly 
35 years by an affection which knew no interruption and felt no decline. 
I Qrateful to God and in charity with all men he calmly yielded up his 
spirit to Him who gave it | in firm faith and hope to partake of the 
exceeding great and precious promises of his Blessed Kedeemer. | A 
deeply sorrowing widow inscribes this record to the memory of her 
dearly loved and devotedly attached husband. | After having sincerely 
mourned the loss of her husband seven years the Hon. Lady Middleton 
died in London May 8. 1867. | A widow indeed that trusteth in God and 
eontinueth in supplications and prayers night and day. | 

A south chancel window has this in glass : — 
In Memoriam Gulielmi Kirby A.M. | 

And a brass plate in the splay of the same window : — 

A.D. 1864. I The Hon^i« ^nne Lady Middleton dedicates this

who during 68 years was a faithful follower of the precepts and 

commandments of lys | Divine Master as Rector in this parish, devoting 



his leisure hours to the study of the wonderful | works of God in the 
insect tribe and the flowers of the field, delighting thus to %mce the | 
attributes of the Almighty in the creation, and looking through Nature 
up to Nature's God. | He died 1850, and lies interred near this window. | 

Two more coloured windows in the nave were inserted by the

her grace to follow their good example and with them to partake of His 
heavenly Kingdom. | 

To the Glory of God and to the loved and precious memory of Sir 
William F. F. Middleton, Bar*- this window is dedicated by his widow, 
Hon^^ Anne Middleton, who deeply sorrows, not as those without hope, 
but in firm faith that this mortal must put on immortality : That death

NORTH ELMHAM, Co. NORFOLK, a.d. 1586-1714. No. L 

In 1891, the Rev. Augustus G. Legge, then Vicar of North Elmham, 
Norfolk, published through Mr. Agas H. Goose of Norwich, the first 
book of Churchwardens' Accounts, covering the eventful period from a.d. 
1539 to A.D. 1577, with some valuable notes, and a helpful glossary, the 
latter answering well to the definition given by Wm. Taylor of Norwich, 
in his well-known English Synonyms discriminated^ "a collection of 
"obsolete or unusual expressions, a supplement to the dictionary of current 
" and living speech, intended to facilitate the persual of antiquated or 
" provincial or technical writings." A glance at the full.table of contents 
is sufficient to show the interesting character of the entries, and to make 
us long for further instalments. As a matter of fact, the accounts 
having being regularly kept down to the year 1714, are ready at hand 
for the purpose. Mr. Legge does not contemplate publishing these in a 
separate form, and has most kindly allowed us the use of his carefully 
made transcripts for publication month by month in the East Anglian. 
The series is a most important one, and will not only prove serviceable but 
awaken considerable interest. Possibly in the course of the issue readers 
of the East Anglian may wish to offer brief comments, or seek to have 
some of the entries further elucidated ; we shall from time to time avail 
ourselves of such notes as Mr. Legge has written down, to which we may 
add a few observations. The first volume of Mr. Legge's transcripts run 
from A.D. 1586 to 1628, but the original volume, having been for a time 
lost to the parish, and only recovered after the later transcripts had been 
made, unfortunately lacks such notes as those with which Mr. Legge 
has enriched his transcripts of the subsequent years. A list of lands 
belonging to the parish, with references to the deeds under which they 
are held, together with various lists of rentals, agreements, certificates, 
and other matters of a like nature, which occupy considerable space at 
the commencement, may with two exceptions be passed over. 


A curious entry occurs more than once in this and similar terms : — 
" Ite one indenture betwixt henry Doyley, genV. f the inhabitants 

of Northelmha for the destroying of rooks, croes f chaughes, daP 19^

(To be cofUinuecL) 






























Maldon — Hbtbridob versus Colohbstbr. (Conclusum.) 

(p. 14.) It is questionable whether Lexden and Colchester fortress, 
both existed in the time of Claudius ; probably the latter owes its origin 
to Nero, after the destruction of Camulodunum. 

(F.) As regards numismatic evidence of Camulodunum, we have 
at present none, beyond what is stated by Grough, of a considerable 
quantity of Roman coins and an incredible number of rude-shaped urns, 
found at Heybridge, at the end of the causeway, with evidence of more 
contiguous to the ditch made when they were found. (Is not this 
enough to whet the appetite of some really earnest antiquary in the 
locality ?) It is clear thfit the Saxon Maldon had no existence in Roman 
times, and the real site at Heybridge, is as yet unexplored. At 
Colchester a large quantity of Roman coins would be naturally expected 
to be found, as the successor of Camulodunum ; but as the Romans had 
occupation of the latter only 14 years, not many (unless in hoards) 
could be expected to be found scattered there, and none after Nero. 
The finding of coins of Cunobelinus or any other, at Colchester, by no 
means implies that it was his capital. 

(p. 15.) Mr. Gould's arguments as to the site of Camulodunum, 
when summarized, only show : — 

(A.) The roads between Colchester and London; between 
Colchester and Verulam; and between Colchester and Braughing, all 
together show, that the theory that Colchester was the successor and not 
the site of Camulodunum, is not inconsistent with fact. 

(B.) The site of Chesterford being impossible as a British 
stronghold is no evidence whatever that Camulodunum and Colonia 
were on the same spot; and no such evidence has been shown. 

(C.) The possibility of the portents, <&c., is quite as great at the 
island at Heybridge, if not greater, than at Colchester, and therefore, 
may, without inconsistency, be well referred to Heybridge. 

(D.) The Antonine Itinerary confirms my theory, by showing 
that Colonia and Camulodunum are different and distinct localities, by 
being visited and mentioned in different Iters. 

(F.) The numismatic evidence is yet imperfect^ but strong 
presumption is in favor of Heybridge. 

(G.) Ptolemy's latitudes and longitudes are unreliable for this 
(or any) purpose. 

Though the paper was written to assert the claims of Colchester, 
some of the arguments tend to show the claim of Heybridge so much, 
that I cannot resist the opportunity to further assert its claim. There 
is one most remarkable feature : If the island I point out toas not the 
site of Camulodunum, how do the advocates of Colchester, or any body 
else, account for the remarkable causeway existing at Heybridge f The 
idendtity might safely be left dependent on the answer to this. 


(p. 16.) Among the great names cited by Mr. Gould is Mr. 
Haverfield. I saw his paper in The Antiqiiary^ and felt a great inclination 
to reply ; but thinking, from experience, that after I had written a 
reply it might not be printed, I refrained ; hut I will take this 
opportunity to do so. 

1 quite agree with Sir G. Airy in what he says, except that 
Colchester was Camulodunum, and the seat of government under 
Claudius. As beforesaid, 1 consider that Colchester was not adopted 
until after the destruction of Camulodunum by Boadicea, and was 
wholly the work of Nero. 

(p. 18.) Amateur antiquaries are greatly indebted to Mr. Gould 
for his Appendix, which supplies a want I have long felt, in common no 
doubt with others. The Tabula (p. 22) especially 1 have for years 
longed to see ; and I should be disposed to allocate the names there 
found as follows : 

North of the Thames. South of the Thames. 

Ad Taum — Tasboro Madus — Maidstone 

Sitomagus — Stowmarket Rotibis — Rochester 

Combretonium — Ridgwell Durolevo — Stone 

Ad Ansam — Kelvedon Rutupis — Richboro' 

Canonium — Dubris — Dover 

Camulodunum — Heybridge Duruvernnum — Canterbury 

Lemanis — Lymne Hythe [tie 

Isca Dumnoniorun — Maiden Cas- 
RidumoMoridunum — Wareham 
but the relative position of Maiden Castle and Wareham seem rather 

(p. 24.) The reading which I should suggest for Iters ix. and v. 
would be as under — 

Iter IX. Iter ix. 

Venta Icenorum — Caistor Durolitum — Epping-Leyton 

Sitomago — Stowmarket Londinium — London 

Cambretonum — Ridgwell 

Ad Ansam — Kelvedon Iter v. 

Camulodunum — Heybridge Londinium — London 

Canonium — Csesaromagus — Widford 

Csesaromagus — Widford Colonia — Colchester 

It is astonishing how classical scholars can be so forgetful as not to 
remember that m. p. m. stands for "Mille Passuum" or 1000 paces, as they 
must have read hundreds of times in their school days; and more 
especially Dr. Guest, a university man. But even he seems rather 
uncertain, for although he advocates the " plus minus " theory, he says 
distinctly that m. p. means nidlia passuuniy Q. E. D. ; but then millxa 
would appear to be rather debased Latin. In reality, however, the plus 
minus theory is not wanted ; for the Antonine distances, when properly 
applied, will be found so correct that there is no occasion to resort to it. 


This test had not been applied in Dr. Guest's time, and therefore he 
was induced to write the loose observations which are found. 

I find that the Roman 1000 paces was about one-twentieth, or 90 
yards, shorter than the English mile, i.e., about 1670 yards, making 18 
English equal to about 19 Roman miles. 

Now, turning to Mr. Haverfield's paper in The Antiquary for Feb., 
1895, I should take exception, first to the statement that Camulodunum 
was in existence ami flouri$hing in the second century, as Antoninus, 
the Ravennas, and two inscriptions clearly testify. This can only 
be done by identifying Camulodunum with Colchester, which I decidedly 
deny. Further, there is nothing to show (except this assumed identity) 
that it was on a road from London dividing at Colchester into two, one 
to Venta Icenorum, and the other to Chesterton and Lincoln. The 
alleged inconsistency of the Itinerary arises out of the previous mistake 
as to the roads, coupled with the identity of Camulodunum with 
Colchester. The coins of Claudius and Nero are comparatively rare, by 
reason probably of its short existence before Nero's death. Claudius 
died A.D. 54, and Nero a.d. 68 ; and its fortification was not before 
A.D. 61. But no doubt it did exist and flourish in the second, third, 
and fourth centuries. The road from London is no doubt the fifth Iter 
of Antoninus ; and it is not unnatural that coins of Cunobeline should 
be found in great profusion, seeing that it was long an important place 
in the territory of the Trinobantes. We know that Colonia and 
Camulodunum were visited in separate and distinct journeys, which 
does not exactly show that they were identical. But there is a com- 
peting site, and Camden was not far wrong in suggesting Maldon, but 
it now appears that this town was only a Saxon successor of Camulo- 
dunum, which really had existed on an island in the Blackwater river, 
which has now (apparently) become annexed to Heybridge on the north 
bank of the river as it now exists, where Roman remains have been 
found, and where there exists a most remarkable causeway, which can 
be accounted for only by the supposition that it was Roman work. The 
difficulty as to the stations along the road from London to CHmulodunom 
not being satisfactorily found along the road to Colchester is, that the 
two roads are distinct, and so they would not be likely to be found 
there, as suggested by the waiting discoverer. It is dangerous to 
overthrow the identification of a once important place, because some 
later and greater place has overshadowed it, and its actual site has not 
yet been ascertained and explored. No doubt this has been done by 
antiquaries, who, to make their preconceived notions of identity of 
places reconcileable, have not hesitated to contradict and alter the 
mileage of Antoninus so as to make it suit their own preconceived 
notions. I have not myself found the Itinerary an unsatisfactory 
document, but on the contrary a very correct and reliable companion ; 
and there seems no reason to doubt that it was originally correct^ but 
that errors have crept in through the numerous transcriptions; but 


these can be detected and allowed for. The Romans at least must not 
be classed among those ancients who could not calculate pileage, for I 
find it wonderfully correct if applied reasonably ; and it is scarcely fair 
to run down and depreciate a useful work because its correct inter- 
pretation is not understood.

Offton, Somersham, and Layham, which, however, goes no further back 
than to the middle of the 17th century. Does any other good 
pedigree exist f 



Yarmouth Guide (pp. 149-51). — Mr. Gerish will find the ancient 
map to which he refers to reproduced in Pahner's Peri. (Vol. i,, p. 2). The 
original, entitled "il Plott of tJie Sand and Waters, in vellum before 
Yarmouth toas built" is still the property of that Corporation. Ives had 
it engraved for his " Garianonum" and probably Forster took this very 
plate for his work. When Palmer wrote, the original was in the 
possession of the late W. K. Fisher, of Lincoln's Inn.

Sib Robert Curzon or Lord Curzon (pp. 78, 144, 160). — The 
,will of "Robt. Curson Knt & Lorde Curson of Ippiswich," proved 12 
March, 1634, in the Bishop's Court at Norwich, will be found in Book 
No. 42, " Atmer," fo. 287. He desires to be buried in the Grey Friars 
in Ipswich. To Dame Margaret^ his wife, he leaves his purchased lands 
in Blaxhall, Kelshall, Tunstall, and Donyngford, co. Suffolk, and his- 
houses in Ipswich. He makes his wife chief executrix, and appoints 
William Waller, Esq., supervisor. His body is to be buried within four 
days at the uttermost. Masses are to be said for the souls of his 
father and mother, whose names are not given. There is no mention of 
other relations.

An' wen I sees fooks read an' write 

I faals a blarmed owd fule ; 

But this hare's wot my grammother

An' she wore right a tough un, foor 

She lived ter ninety three ; 

How more 'n a hunderd yare agoo, 

Wen good owd Goorge wore King, 
An' England fowt the Frenchmin, as 

I've heerd owd sowdjers sing ; 


A regiment o' sowdjers come * 

Along o' this hare rood, 
An' laay in Blybrer Straate a waak, 

A' lodgin' ware they could ; 

An' they'd a band o' music got, 
With drummers tew oor three, 

An' one o' these hare drummers chape 
Wore blaack as blaack could be ; 

filaack Toby wore his Chrissen uaame, t 
His naature, 'twore thaat baadd 

As iy'ry one as knowed 'm said 
The devil wore his daad ; 

One ev'nin he wore stroamin* round

Wen a gal come gald'rin' down yon rood, 

An arter har he goos ; 

Now wot he said oor done ter har 

I caan't ezackly tell, 
Foor yaou be bound 'twam't nuthin good.

An' catcht har by the neck. 

Har hankercher he then pulled out, 
Which round har throot he tied. 

An' then he hulled har on the ground. 
An' graained har till she died ; 

An' then, 'tis wonndy straange to saay. 

The drink began ter tell, 
An' in drunkin kind o' slaape 

Right by the coorpse he fell. 

The next d' mom some laabrin' fooks

As might be supposed, the coast liue of this county left it exposed 
to the attacks of the Norsemen, and, as was their wont, they left 
abundant traces of their occupation of the soil, not only on the border* 
but inland. 

There 106 places ending in tanj 95 in ham, eleven in borough, five 
in by, twenty-seven in ley, and two in thorpe. 

From which it will be seen that whatever footing may have been 
gained previously by Angles or Saxons, the northern free-booters 
established themselves in considerable numbers. 

The numerous fortified towns or farms added to the burgs or 
strongholds, indicate a determination to make secure their settlements 
in this part of the country. 

The footing thus gained would make each incursion more dangerous 
to the inhabitants of the midland and home counties, because it would 
form a sure basis for their repeated invasions.

(To he continued.) 

"Mills Passitum" (p. 189). It certainly would have been 
wonderful if Dr. Guest bad forgotten this well-known expression. He 
may be credited with having deliberately preferred the *' plus minus " 
interpretation of "pm" in the Itineraries. The expression "leugas 
plus minus'' at the beginning of the Jerusalem Itinerary (a.d. 333), 
an inscription quoted by Scaliger, '* Alexandria clariRsima femina vixit 
annos plus minus xxv," and '' plus minus " written out at full length 
in two manuscripts of the Maritime Itinerary, may have some weight 
with Mr. Napper. That millia without passuum is not a merely late 
Latin expression is clear, from Cic. ad Att. iil, 4, where that pattern of 
correctness writes simply ultra quadringenta millia.

The following early example of the operation of Caesarean section 
is of more than surgical hiterest. As may be gathered from the letter, 
the object of the operation was to enable Harry Reppes to prove that his 
wife had had live issue. By this means he would be allowed the use of 
her lands for life, by the ** courtesy of England." An abstract of this 
letter is given by Mr. Walter Rye in his excellent calendar of the Gawdy

The Oppicb of "Inqubarbr" (? Inquirer) a.d. 1695. — In one of 
the singular papers forming part of the appendix to Dr. Zachary Grey's 
" Impartial Examination of NeaVs History of the Puritans " (Vol. iv.), 
from the original in Dr. William's Collection, is an abject " Confession " 
made during Divine Service by the two Churchwardens and three other 
individuals, described as " late Inquearers of the Parish of Cottenham," 
(Cambs.) for neglect of duty while in office. The neglect mainly consisted, 
it would seem, in not presenting disorderly persons, in particular one 
Robert Rivers for incontinency. I should be glad to learn something 
about "Inquearers" and their office. I do not remember previously 
meeting with the name.

Entries in N. Elmham Churchwardbns' Accounts (vide p. 184, 
etc.) — Ttiere are several entries in these accounts (Vol. vi., pp. 185-6-7) 
which require elucidation, and I shall be glad of any information which 
the readers of the East Anglian can give me. Good Queen Bess was 
upon one of her progresses, as is evident from the quaint entry in which 
" Henry Wakfielde" is paid 10/- "for goinge w^^ his carte for her ma**« 
in her progresse." What is known of this progress? Where was the 
Queen going ? Was she passing through Elmham on her way to 
Walsingham, distant about 12 miles? There are no less than six entries 
shois^ing that the parish of Elmham had to supply " provisions " for her. 
If surrotmding parishes were mulcted in the same way she must have 
fared right royally, and the county must have been put to no inconsider- 
able expense. There are two entries respecting " wormwood." What 



was it used for 7 It was evidently considered to be of some importance, 
as " Njcholas Butler standeth bound vnto the town " for the keeping 
of it. *'Tho. Walden " appears before the Norwich justices for hemp 
seed. What is the interpretation of this ? The Churchwardens appear 
before **mj L. (Lord) and M''. ffarmer'' at Fakenham. For what 
purpose ? and who is " mj Lord " ? The " Mr. Smith " mentioned in the 
accounts and inventory of Church goods, was vicar from 1580 to 1631. 
He it was who transcribed, in obedience to the Order of 1598, the early 
Register upon parchment. 

As my object is to fill my ms. accounts with notes wherever light 
ought to be thrown, and then present them to the parish of Elmham, 
it will be seen how gladly I shall welcogie any information which I can 
glean from the East Anglian,

Thb Termination " Grave " in Place Names — Ancient Barrowb — 
(Vol. v., p. 31). — ^The following extract from a letter written by the late 
Miss Crisp of Orford, dated Sept 18th, 1890, would seem to confirm the 
opinion of the late Dr. Hind : — 

" My sister has found several of the labourers here (Orford), who 
"were employed at Gedgrave Hall, during the restoration of the Farm 
" Buildings there, and who were present at the * great find of Skeletons ' 
" under the floor of the Cart Horse Stable. They all agree in placing 
" the number of * heads * found, at * from 60 to 70." 

"A Mr. Wightman of Aldeburgh, who was also employed there, 
" says : In reply to my letter of enquiry, that * he ' assisted in removing 
" some 30 skeletons that lay side by side under the floor of the stable 
" at Gedgrave Hall."

they would be outlawed if they did not appear, and if they did appear, 
then the sheriff should arrest them, and keep them in safe custody, 
until the arrival of Hugo la Zouche, and his fellow justices at 
Cambridge on Wednesday after Epiphany in the fifth year. To answer 
separately concerning the divera treasons and felonies of which they had 
b^n indicted. At which date Thomas Sewale the sheriff returned that 
only nineteen of them had given themselves up or been arrested. The

cision. 5 Hichd. II.

Pleas held in the Isle of Ely before Hugh la Zouche, Ac, on 
Thursday before St. Margaret the Virgin. 6 Richd* ii. 

The inquisition taken on that day says that Richard de Leycester 
of Ely on Saturday after Corpus Christi, of his own free will arose with 
John Buk of Ely and many other malefactors whose names are unknown, 
an went through the whole town of Ely, bidding all men of whatsoever 
degree, to rise and go with him, and destroy divers traitors whom he 
named to them, on the part of the King and the faithful commonalty : 
and he also made various proclamations, seditiously and to the King's 
prejudice. By which the people of Ely and other towns in the Isle 
were disturbed and damaged in manifold ways. 

Also they say that the same Richard on the Sunday following 
ordered John Shethere of Ely, Eli Glovere, John Basshe skynnere, John 
Tylneye, wryght, and John Reder of Ely, Thomas Litster of Ely, 
Richard Swonn and John Milner of the same and many others of the 
commonalty there congregated, that they should go with him into the 
monastery of Ely, and there standing in the pulpit of the said monastery 
he would publicly show to them, the things to be performed on the part 
of the King and the commonalty against traitors and other unfaithful. 
And this under the penalties of burning their houses and cutting off 
their heads. Also they say that the same Richard, with others above 
named, on the Monday following broke' into the prison of the Bishop of 
Ely and liberated the prisoners. And on the same day feloniously 
adjudged Edmund de Walsyngham one of the King's justices in 
Cambridgeshire, to death, so that the said Edward was beheaded, and 
his head placed on the pillory, to the pernicious example of all. They 
also say that Richard was the principal leader of the disturbances in the 
Isle of Ely. He was captured, found guilty and hanged. He had one 
shop in * le BoOhne * of Ely, worth per annum beyond expenses lOs. and 
goods valued at 20 marks. 

Also they say that John Buk of Ely was an ally of Richard during 


all the disturbance, especially in the matter of Edmund de Walsyngham. 
He took from the said Edmund a purse containing forty-two and a half 
marks, violently assaulted him, dragged him to the place of execution, 
and gave to John Deye of Wyvelyngham who beheaded him 12d for his 
trouble. He was captured, found guilty and hiinged. He had goods 
and chattels to the value of £20. 

in dor$o. 

They also say that Sliether, Glovere, Basshe, Tylneye, Reder, 
Lytster, Swon and Milner above named, were principals with. Leycester 
when he broke open the prison, burnt the Bishop's books and murdered 
Walsyngham. They also say that George atte Grene, John Bole, John 
Chevyn senior, John Che vyn junior, Richard Goolde, Thomas Bokenham, 
Walter Wryht, Richard Prentiz, John Dykmau, Richard Chapman, 
Richard servant of Eli Glover, John Payn wright, John Clymme, 
Henry Cook, Thomas Tydy, John Somersham, Robert de Lynne sherman, 
John Rush, Robert servant of Richard Leycester, John Taillour atte 
Stepel, John Everesholt, Robert Plomer, and John his servant, Roger 
Soutere of Ely, and William Swon were common rebels against the 
peace at the instigation of John Shether, &c. Chevyn senior, CUmme, 
and Tydy are arrested and found not guilty. Rush, Taillour, Robert de 
Lynn, Simon Teye and Henry Cook are taken and remain in prison. 
The others could not be found. 

Elp, Adam (clymme was arrested as a raiser of sedition, because on 
Saturday after Corpus Christi, he, with others broke into the close 
of Thomas Somenour, and 'diversi rotuli extracti viredis cere' belonging 
to the King and the Bishop, and other muniments of the King's court, 
took away and burnt, to the prejudice of the crown. 

Also they say that Adam on the day and year above mentioned 
'fuit vagans armatus armis discoopertis portans signum ad insurrectionem 
congregandum, precipiens ne aliquis cujuscumque existens conditionis 
libere vel simul intenderet domino suo ad aliqua servicia seu 
consuetudines faciendum sub pena decollationis aliter quam eis 
informaret ex parte magne societatis.' By which means he traitorously 
assumed the Kingly power. He was found guilty and hanged. His 
chattels were worth 32s. 

Uly. William Combe was charged with being an aider and abettor of 
Clymme, Leycester and Buk. He held the highway and bridge 
of Stuntney lest any of the King's or Bishop's ministers should pass 
that way. He was found guilty and hanged. His chattels were worth 
16s. 7d.

(To be contifwecL) 



Rebuilt during the present century in a plain starved-looking kind 
of Early English, there is not much of interest in Whitton Church, 
which contains chancel, nave, and aisles, with a small tower and spire 
in the south-west angle. The one bell, Dr. Bayen says, is of ooutinental 
make, bearing the §,bt lljwria and date mccccxu. An Early English 
piscina remains in the chancel. 

A memorial slab in the chancel floor is the only one to be seen in 
the church : — 

In memory of | Humphrey May Gent. | who departed this Life | 
the 27 of Dec^'" 1762 | Aged 69 Years. | And of Rebecca his Wife | who 
departed this Life | the SO^* of April 1794 | Aged 90 Years. | 

A brass plate under one of the chancel windows is emblazoned az. 
a bend between 2 stag's heads couped or, Howortk. 

+ To the Glory of God, and in Memory of j Thomas Orton 
Howorth, Captain in H.M. 44**» Reg*- | who died at Bombay Jan^ 23"* 
1865, aged 28 years. | This Window is erected by his brother OflScers. | 
Ad finem esto fidelis. | 

A brass plate under the east window : — 

Ad honorem Dei CM. | Memoriam Autem | Gulielmi Howorth 
A.M. I hujusce parochieB Rectoris Annos XXXX. | Natus Mart. 3o A.D. 
1806. I Migravit e vita Dec. IS^ A.D. 1875. | 

Two brass inscriptions beneath windows and a third in glass 
commemorate a prominent benefactor to the church : — 

To the glory of God and in memory of Charles Steward, by whom 
I this church was mainly restored, and who died on the 5^ day of | 
July 1867, this window is erected by his widow and children | in token 
of their deep affection for a most excellent husband | and father, and 
the sorrow with which they mourn his death. | 

To the Glory of God, and in memory of Charles Steward Esq'- who 
died July 5*^ 1867 aged 54 years | This window was erected by the | 
joint subscriptions of Sixty Three Friends. | 

An affectionate tribute of many friends to the memory of Charles 
Steward Esquire. | 


This church has also been largely rebuilt, the chancel and transepts 
with organ chamber and vestry being new, but the old Decorated nave 
of plain rubble remains. There are some vestiges of Saxon " long and 
short'' masonry in the angles. The north porch is now used as a 
coalhouse. The embattled west tower contains but one bell, 

The other bells were sold many years ago. 

The font is of the common octagonal make, with shallow cusped 
ogee headed panels on its sides, containing alternately a crown, and s^ 


demi-angel holding a plain shield. The pedestal is supported bj eight 
buttresses, the spaces between ornamented with tracery. 

The font is fitted with an old domed cover of wood, topped by a 
gilded aoom/ 

Dowsing paid a visit here Jan. 22, 1643, and "brake down 3 
superstitious Pictures ; and gave order to take down 3 Crosses of the 
Steeple ; and one of the Chancel." 

The modem stone pulpit and some of the coloured glass are the 
work of the late Rector, the Rev<^- Geo. Drurj. 

The earliest inscription is on a marble ledger stone in the organ 
chamber, which has this inscription engraved in Roman letters upon a 
brass border fillet : — 

Hie iacet Samvell Aylemer | Armiger, Johannis qvondam Lond : 
£piscop : filivs natv maximvs, hvivs manerij { Domiuvs, qvi obijt 
dvodecimo die lanvarU | Anno Domini Milesimo, sexcentesimo, tricestiuo 
qvinto. | 

Upon a lal)el in the centre of the stone is 

Sic vos venistis, Abibitis omnes. | 

And upon another at the foot 

Resurgam. | 

Part of the inscription is now hidden by the organ platform. 
Samuel Aylmer built the red brick manor-house in this parish, commonly 
known as Mockbeggar's Hall, from a tale that its ei-ection was paid for 
in farthings. 

Upon a stone in the nave is this, now almost obliterated : — 

Here lyeth the Body | of Elizabeth Nvnu, | the daughter of 
Willi I am Nvnn &, Martha | his wife, who departed | Jvne 4*^ 1647. | 

A black marble ledger stone in the chancel pavement is carved 
with a shield of arms (Arg.) on a baker's peel (Sa.) 3 plates, Phtor ; 
impaling ( ) on a cross ( ) 5 mullets ( ). 

Hie jacent Reliquise | Johannis Pistor, nuper | hujus Ecclesiee 
Pientissinii ] et Vigilantissimi Rectoris | qui obiit 24<* Octob. Anno | 
iEtatis sufB 70™<», Salutis | Humanse 1711"*®.|( The greater part of 
this inscription is now hidden by benching, as is the following, on the 
opposite side of the chancel : — 

Hie subtus Sitae | Beatam Sperant Resurrectionem | Janae Pistor 
VidufiB I Miitronse vere Spectabilis | Mortales Exuviae. | Obdormivit in 
Christo I Id us Novembris | Anno iEtatis LXVIII | iErce vero Xtianae | 

There are five inscriptions upon sepulchral stones in the organ 
chamber to members of the ancient Drury family who have been 
connected with the parish for the last two centuines. 

Within this vault | are deposited the remains of | Frances the wife 
of I Richard Vere Drury Esq*" | only daughter | of Sir George Vanderput 
Bart. I and Dame Mary his wife, | who departed this life | the 23'^- day 
of February A.D. 1787, | Aged 38 Years. | Her amiable and truly

An oval marble tablet now in the vestry floor was no doubt 
formerly mural : — 

Near this wall | is deposited the Body of | Anketell Singleton Esq^ 
I Lieutenant Governor of | Landguard Fort ; | a Native of the County 
of Monaghan | in the Kingdom of Ireland, | and 58 Years an Ofl&cer | 
in his Majesty's Service ; | died Feb'y 21, 1804 | Aged 82 Years. | 

In the same part of the building is a ledger stone, inscribed : —

The earliest dated headstone in the churchyard is to Robert 
Sudland 1698; another to Elizabeth Girling 1720. There are also 
some further memorials of the Drury family.

The Records of the Star Chamber contain probably a greater 
variety of information than any other class of Public Records. Civil, 
criminal and ecclesiastical offences all came before it, and as the Bills, 
Answers, Replications, Depositions, etc., are written in English, that 
adds an additional interest to the proceedings. But unfortunately ouly 
a very small proportion of these records have been calendared or indexed. 



Amongst the Bills of complaint of the reign of Henry viii., there are 
two by Thomas Dale of Seyfle, Co., York, ode against Robert WilliSj 
prior of Ely, and another in almost identical wording against Robert 
Dereham and Richard Denys, monks at Ely. Complainant states that 
in the nineteenth year of King Henry the 8., on September the 12t^» 
in the evening, he * being butt a chyld and goyng to graiSe scole at Ely ' 
was passing by the gate of the monastery, when a body of monks 
suddenly rushed forth and "not lyke any men of god relegyon but lyke 
furyous persons strake yo*" seyd supplyant to the gronde " and severely 
injured him. Amongst the said monks were Robert Dereham and 
Richard Denys. Complainant had applied to Robert Willis who then 
was and still is Prior for "due recopens for his seid hurt beyng sore 
wondyd and putt yn iubardye of hys lyffe and the seyd ^o^ nothyng 
regardyd the seyd opprobrious demeno' of his seid monks." The 
answers of the Prior and monks, if any were ever made, have not been 
preserved. The references to these two documents are " *S7ar Chamber 
Proceedings, Hen. 8. 2^84383"

The following inquisition taken by order of the Queen's writ, is a 
fair example of the information which may l)e obtained from the 
inquiries concerning concealed lands, amongst the Special Commissions 
of the Exchequer : — 

Inquisition taken at Caxton, December 18th, 28 Elizabeth. The 
jury (whose names are given in full), say that John Harrwood of Lytell 
Eversden gave 3 acres of land in the sayd towne to the maintenance of 
a lyghte in the parishe churche there as Robert Harrwood hath deposed, 
but how long the same was to continue we cannot tell. We find 
likewise that Cudberde Ostler of Barnnngton possesseth an aker of 
ground there, whereon a Barne standeth, w<^ sometymes one John Gibbs 
had who was Scott borne, but whether he was free denisen or not, we 
cannot tell. We find likewise that Alice Bye of Barrington widdowe, 
gave 3 acres of land in the same for maintenance of an obbite, now in 
the occupation of John Gipps the elder. We find lykewise that an 
Ermite dwelt in a bowse in Kingston in the county of Cambridge, 
standinge in a parcell of ground contayninge two acres, w^^ sayd ermy te 
dwellinge there did cast hollywater on them that came to him fortye 
yeares sit hence and tooke the proffitts thereof w*'^ sayd close and howse 
nowe are in the tenure of the Parson there, but whether the sayd howse 
and close were given or used to anye other superstitious use before or 
since that tyme we knowe not. We finde lykewise, five akers of arrible 
land in Kingston in the said county to be sometyme belonginge to the 
Prior of Barnwell late in the tenure of John Baker being worth yearly 
( blank), but whether yt hath ben sence bought of the Qnene we cannot 
tell. — Exchequer Special Comtnimons No. 2926, 

It would be interesting to know if there remain any traces of the 
existence of the hermit at Hinxton, either as local tradition, or name of 
a meadow or enclosure.

Manwoou of Ipswich (p. 96, 208). — The following extracts from 
Bacon's Annals of Ipstif^* refer perhaps to John, son of John and Frances 
Mauwood (see p. 208), who may have been the "John Manwood of 
Ips witch mj Cousen," named as a devisee in the wills, dated 1624 and 
1625, of Tho. Partridge of (;apel (see p. 96). 

6 May 44 Eliz. [1601]. " Rob : Goodinff discharged from Alderm : Guild uppon 
pB3nnt of his fine of 61i. ISs. 4d., and John Manwood allsoe for the like fine."— p. 412. 

8 Sep. 1H05. '* Joli : Manwood " was one of the Chamberlins of the borough, —p. 421. 

Is anything more known of this John Manwood? 
Ipsioick. J. C. 

The following notes are from wills proved at Burj Registry (Arch. 
Sndb.) :— 

(1) Juylian Manwoode of Sudburv, labourer, will dated 1654, proved 1562; 
mentions his wife Joan, his children, and the church of S. Grogory. 

(2) Edmund Manwood of much Cornerde, Will dated 29 Nov. 1.576; mentions 
his wife Joan, and his children, Tho. (ex'or), John, Tobye, Robert, Gresill, and Marg. 

(3) Tho. Manwood of Glemsford, Will dated 1594 ; mentions bis wife Marg., and 
his children, Tho., John, Marg., Rich., Tobie, and Naum. 

(4) Tho. Manwood of Little Welnetham, yeoman, Will dated and proved 1603 ; 
mentions his wife Eliz. (exMx) and his sister Gressel Manwood. 

The above family seems to have been that to which Tho. Partridge 
of Capel and Higham was related, for in Higham register are the 
following entries : — 

1585 John* Partridge singleman and Gresell Manboode singlewoman weare 
maried the vitb of June. 

159jt Thomas Brufiiiinge and Gysell f Partich weare maried the first daye of Marche. 

As I cannot yet trace the exact relationship, I shall be grateful for 
any further notes. 

♦ Possibly brother to Tho. Partridge. t Possibly sister to T. P. 
Stoxvmarket, Suffolk, Charles S. Partridgk.

(To be continued). 


On June 9th, 1380, the commissary of the Bishop of Ely was 
holding his court in the conveutual church of Chatteris. Before him 
was brought Richard Fysshere of Chatteris, accused of having used his 
wife very badly (pemme pertractavit tixorem). He had broken her 
rfiitt (tibiamX and inflicted on her other severe injuries (enormes Unones). 
Richard acknowledged his fault, and promised for the future to use her 
with all marital affection, and to get her a doctor who should heal her 
as far as it was possible. Whereupon he was ordered this penance. 
He was to walk round the parish church of Chateriz for three Sundays 
in a penitential manner, carrying a wax taper before the procession, and 
to pay 20«. to the fabric of the church within a year ; and at the feast 
of St Etheldreda he was to walk without his clothes (depoHtxs vestibus 
suis) round the church of Ely with the procession, carrying a wax taper 
in his hand in a penitential manner. As there is no record of his being 
brought up again for contumacy, this penance was probably performed.

;notb8 and queries, etc. 229 



(Brit. Mus. BihL HarL 6395. Plut. ux. jl) 

Sir Nicholas L'E8;trange of Hunstanton, Bart, who died 1669, 
4X>ll6cted a number of curious anecdotes, ^., now remaining in a small 
][& volume in our National library. Some of these stories tcte 
exceedingly coarse, but others will bear being printed verbatim et 
litteratim : — 

" Mr. Benj** Whittipoole (Sir Wms. Uncle), who being a younger 
** Brother & left by his Father *to Shift,' was wont to swear that he 
'"was ^ never beholding to his Father for a groate.' W. & his childwi 
"had very high foreheads.'' 


"At the Lecture at St. Gregories in Norwich the ministers had 
" 28. 6d. a Sermon whereupon Mr. Legate when he preach't sayd they 
';"gave them Judas his pay, which was 30 pence." 

"When they were so hott about ceremonies and removing the 
*^ Comunion Table out of the Bodie of the Church to place it Altar-wise 
"in the Chancell, one askt what newes from Cambridge ? Why says he, 
^'doe you not heare? They are altaring all their Chappells and 
"Chancells there." 

" A plaine fellow of Ipswich being before Bp. Wrenn for some point 
"about the Sabbath, ney says the Bisp. to him, thou art a Notable 
" fellow, I war'nt thou maintainst Circumcision too ; Faith Sr says he, 
** I'll be circumcised before I'll loose my SabbaotL" 

" A lame fellow of Ipswich being demanded by Bish. Wrenn why 
'^' he did not bow the knee at the name of Jesus ! why my L^ sayes he, 
" one knee does bowe, but the other will not ; and why so sayes my Ld ; 
"why, because 'tis stiflFe and lame." 

"Bish. Wrenne demanded of an Ipswich Churchwarden if his 
" minister used to say the Nicene Creede ! Nice Creede says he, what's 
that ? if you tell me the Toppe or the Tayle ont, I can auswere you." 

"The Schoolmaster of Ipswich being a precise man, some had 
*' informed Bish. Wrenne that he never taught his Boyes the optative 
'** Moode, least they should take God's name in vaine : the Bishop sent 
" for him, and questions him, he answers, that he converst not with the 
" Moodes, for they were so many formes under him, as such a question 
"" was beneath the dignitie of his Lordeshipe ; and what his Usher did 
** he knew not ; then the Usher was cited, and he to cleere himself, prou'd 

130 THE SA8T AKOLIAN; 0«» 

"that be taught Obtioam fto., Obnxtus imaQia enet : Adulter aquis : or 
"Regulus esset aquig."* 

'' Bisboppe Wrenne, a mlghtie man in ceremonies, and in deadly 
"opposition to the Towne of Ipswich, hearing that Montague Bish : of 
.^'JNorwioh (a man indifferent and indulgent in these points), passing that 
. *' way was graakmsly entertained and presented with a gilt Ouppe ; wrote 
"him a acoming letter upon it, inatnuating that be heard he tooke a 
"ouppe too much at Ipsich and was sorry for him he should be ao 
"much overcome." 

With one or two of these stories some of our readers may be familiar, 
but possibly Sir Nicholas L'fistrange's Teraion is that from which they 
were originally taken. 

The Withipoll note, besides being characteristic of the family 
temper, offers some evidence as to the personal appearance of the 
members of this remarkable Ipswich family — resident, from a.d. 1549, 
for upwards of a hundred years, in the historic mansion of Christchurcht 
which has lately passed from the Fonnereau family to the town 
authorities. Benjamin was the 11th son and is named in his father's 
will, A.D. 1569. 

* The Rev. Dr. Raren Km kindly aent as the followiiig note on tfaie flBfl^ar 
aDeodoto:-~*'Thoiigli there is bo model eodiii^ for the optative in Latiji, khim 
flTammariane eeem to have taught its virtual e^cistence in the U8e of Ultinam with 
the subjunetive form. Tlie 'predee' Schoolroaiiter, fej^tng that hie pupils might 
lightly say, Would to Ood tkat ....... ! does not teach the optativie, and evades the 

Bishop's question. The usher, an ignoramus, in his blundering eagerness to satisfy 
the Bishop, asserts that he teaches the use of (Minam, taking the first syllable from 
the word ObrutuB which starts his pentameter. The story is important, m showing 
t^tmt the Bishops really enquired into the qualifications of tiie men who held the 
Schoolmaster's uoense from them.** — ^Ed,

Corpus Christi, Thomas Lyncoln of Littleport, Thomas Ixnyng, 
John atte Styk, Thomas Crede, William Doncaster, John Webster of 
Littleport, William Carter of the same, with many others, whose names, 
are unknown, seized and burnt many court rolk and other evidences- 
belongmg to Thomas Bishop of Ely. And that Robert Plomcr of Ely,. 
John son of Nicholas Gunneld, and Thomas son of John Grciuut of Ely, 
arose against the peace and went out of the lordship of Ely to Kamsey,. 
with Robert Tanell, a leaderof the insurgents, on the Tuesday following. 
Also they say that John Ferer of Sutton, Humfrey Feldyng,. 
Richard Bythwell, Richard Palfryman, John Fisshe taillour, and Joha 
Wynde of Sutton, with many others unknown at present, ori the said 
Tuesday came from Sutton to Wychham and feloniously tlireatened 
William Craunfeld 'de decollatioue capitis sui pro emeudis ab eo- 
optinendo ubi nulla fuit transgressio.' Also that on the K.'une day they 
came to Wentwurth and by force and arms feloniously entered the- 
manor of the Sacristan of Ely, maliciously seeking the said Sacristan.. 
They also say that Ferer and Feldyng were the ringleaders of the above, 
and also Robert Wynde, Richard Smyth of Sutton, (Geoffrey Waleys 
and many others. John Fisshe and Geoffrey Waleys give themselves. 
up and are kept in the Bishop's prison. They also say that Feldyng on 
Monday after Corpus Christi, broke open the Bishop^s prison and set the 
prisoners free. And that John Ferer, John Waltessheff senior and 
junior, William Haviton and Richard Bythewal with others, on Tuesday 
after C. C proceeded into Hunts, and committed divers felonies there. 
And that William son of Simon atte Townesend with others, on Monday 
after C. C. broke open the Bishop's prison at Ely. Of the above, Fisshe 
and Wynde are the only ones in custody. 
in dorso Pleas held on Friday before St. Margaret 

Another inquisition says that Thomas Barr of Sutton on Sunday 
after C.C. arose with a great force and went to the house of Richaid 
Waltesheff, constable of the town of Sutton, and asked him to rise with 
him or he would bum his house. Then the said Thomas proceeded to 
Mephal to the house of John Fedeler, seeking to take and kill John 
Whyte of Ely and Thomas Somenour and a horse of Thomas seized and 
took away. Also the jury say that on Tuesday following John Lolle- 
wurth went to Hameseye as an insurgent, not coerced, but of liis own 
free will, and feloniously despoiled (the people). Al«o they say that 
Elias Glovere, John Somersham, John Beef, and John Shether dwelling^

they say that John Michel chaplain went out of the Isle of Ely into the 


eompany of John Wraw chaplain "oapitalis ductor," and became a 
laUeader of insuvgents and returned into the Isle, to wit, to EIj, and 
waa there for three days during the disturbance, whilst many felonies 
and evil deeds were perpetrated there and at Wyohham and at Wynte- 
worth by himself and others, to the prejudice of the Crown. None of 
the aboTC appeared to answer to the indictment

Pleas held at Cambridge on

Prior de Bemewell per Qalfridum Baston concanonacum suum, et

the Prior that John Tyteshal, Hugh Candelesby, Hobert Barbour, 
Nicholas Wynpol, and Bichard Marty n were the principal leaders of the 
commonalty at the said transgression. And that the said mayor in 
their presence made proclamation amongst the commons in the form 
aforesaid. Therefore they ask that the mayor and others shall be 
arrested and kept in custody undl they can be tried. The mayor being 
present in court is at onoe oniered to be arrested. Qui petit auditu' 
bill predict'. And since the justices are not advised what to do in this 
case, (Et qz justic* modo non avisunt* quia in premissis de jure fuerit 
faciend^) therefore the mayor is committed into custody till the morrow. 
All the others above named were arrested except Martyn who was 
not to be found. On the morrow at the Castle he is remanded at 
bis own request till Wednesday, when at Chesterton he makes his 
defence. He says that as to the plea of venire vi et armis he 
is in no wise guilty, neither to the charges of breaking the close, 
and cutting down the trees (sintisionem arborum). As to the pro- 
clamation, he says; — qd qz non inoognitum fuit coitatibz ville 
Cantebrigie qd communes Kantie, Essex, Heit et Lond, fuemnt levati 
intendentes levationem predictam ex consensu et precepto domini Begis 
super quo quam plures de villa predicta simul cum aliis tarn de patria 
lata quam de aliis comitatibus secum congregatis subito ad predictum

fecienda que ex parte domini Regis et fidelis oommunitatis ipsius JElegis 
tibi dicenda, statim decapitatus eris" quibus auditis petiit a predictis 
communibus videre et audire warrantum domini Begis ad talia facienda, 
quibus perimptus in omnibus eut perficiend'. Et non allocata predicta 
responsione ipsius maioris unanimiter ad eum accesserunt et per pectus 
eum seiserunt securibus gisarmis et gladiis ad capud et collum sua 
multipliciter per communes proferat' invitas dentibus suis sibi dixerunt 
quod voluntate communitatis perficeret in eo quod notum fuit eis per 
auditum autecessorum suorum de communitatibus ville Cantebrigie quod 
' ante tempus memorie et post tempus memorie quod omnes burgenses ao 
communes residentes in villa Cantebrigie ut tenentes Begis ville predicte 
habere deberent communam magnam ad pascendum averia sua cujus- 
cumque generis ac chaceam et rechaceam suam usque in pasturam suam 
vocatam Estenhal ad eorum libitum in loco illo nuper vocato le Drove 
ut de jure ville Begis predicti ubi predicti arbores palicia et haie 
existabant. Et quod locus predictus injuste ab eis tenentibus Begis per 
Priorem de Bernewell per claustruras et arbores predictas deforciatus 
impeditus existat unde post tempus memorie fuerunt seisiti voluerunt 
uti et re . . . . pastura et chaceam predictas in forma que supra. Et 
inde precipuerunt eidem maiori ut proclamationes faceret ad predictam 
secundum eorum dicta perfic . . . sub periculo decollationis predicte, et 
hoc una voce clamaverunt. Et sic proclamationes fuerunt facti vi 
communitatis, et metu mortis ductus absque hoc quod ipse maior 
auctoritate sen voluntate propria aliter sen aliquam injuriam fecit in 
premissis. Et hoc pretendit verificare secundum discretionem justicium. 

This answer is not deemed to be sufficient by the justices, since he 
did not give the names of those who compelled him to do these things. 
He replies that there were such a great number of people around him in 
the Tol booth, and he was so greatly terrified that he cannot remember 
their names. Therefore he seeks tnib evidence of Bichard Fouke, 
Bobert Brigham, John Bokking his clerk, Bartholomew Chandler and 
Walter Criour, faithful men of the King, who had better sight and 
knowledge of the insurgents in addition to those already named. No 
more names are forthcoming however, and after being in prison for some 
time, the mayor is liberate, but the sheriff is ordered to have good 
security for his appearance when required. 

The document, of which an abstract has been given in the above 
and preceding papers, is in the Public Becord Office, and is now num- 
bered '* Assize Boll 103." It is doubtless the document referred to in 
Stubb's Constitutional History ^ Vol. ii., p. 489 n. and in Archeologia Cantiana^ 
Vol. III., p. 66 u., in the latter of which references it is called Chapter 
House Miscellaneous Becords, No. 33. When I enquired for it under 
that title at the P.B.O., I found that no such reference was known. 
Neither was any such document to be found in the old ms. catalogue of 
Assize Bolls. But when the Cambridgeshire Assize Bolls were all 


examined -in their new order of arraugment, it turned up in its proper 
place, bearing however no reference but the new one of " Assize KoU 
103/' In the new list of Plea Kolls the document is easily traced, but 
the above search was made before that list was issued. 

Some apology is needed for the extraordinary mixture of bad 
English and Latin in which this record has been printed. When the 
abstract was made, there was no intention of publishing it in this form, 
but want of time and ability to produce a critical paper on the subject 
induced me to print it as it was. For the attention of East Anglians 
would then at least be drawn to the whole contents of this hitherto 
unknown roll. In future papers on this subject it is proposed to give 
abstracts of documents showing the social status of the rebels, including 
the account of Kalph Wykes escheator for Cambs. and Hunts, in 1381-2.

A Parish Eeoister with ms. of Ancient Date. — The cover of 
the oldest register of the parish of Kenton, Suffolk, is a parchment sheet, 
beginning with the words : — 

Ludfens be bo 
bfonfflio fm'anfffime 

The expression ©alUCUB COttttniUS and (BeriUantCa CCVOU 
COSftaS occur. I should not think that the writing is older than the 
latter part of the 15th century. 

The passage appears to be taken from the writings of Gregory of 
Tours or of Venantius Fortunatus. If any well-disposed person would 
verify or correct this idea t shall be greatly obliged.

Folk Lore — *Fraries.' — A native of Redenhall, aged 94, told me 
that in her youDg days it was a usual custom to wash out the washing- 
basin and put it on the *' hob ** or " hub," in the belief that the ' frairies * 
would place money in it during the night. The late Lady Camilla 
Gurdon makes no mention of this in her Suffolk Folk Lore, 

Dereham, A. G. Fulchbr. 


A View op the State op the Clergy in Essex (pp. 144). — In 
Bedfordshire Notes and Queries (Vol. ii.), there is a similar list of the 
Clergy of the several Rural Deaneries in that County, in the year 1605. 
No reference is given to the source from which the Bedfordshire return 
was printed ; presumably it is taken from the original certificates of the 
State of Dioceses (Harl. ms. 595), which include the Diocese of 
Lincoln. Bedfordshire, previous to 1837 was in the Lincoln Diocese, 
when, together with Huntingdon, it was placed in the^ Ely Diocese. 

Manwood Family (pp. 96, 208, 224). — There is an excellent pedigree 
of the Manwoods of Lincoln's Inn and of the estate of Priors, parish of 
Bromfield, co. Essex, in Morant's Essex^ Vol. ii., p. 77. Sir Roger 
Manwood, Knight, Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer in 1579, was 
related to this Essex family. See also East Anglian^ n.s., Vol. ni., p. 206.

[It is apparent from the Institution records of past days, that the very frequent 
excluuifi^ of benefices, &c., must have been facilitated by those in authority in a 
way at once expeditious and easy, to the advantage, it may be supposed, of all concerned ; 
a decided contrast to present usase. A reference to lists of Incumbents will make this 
plain, such exchanges being duly noted in former times in the most open manner, 
whereas no such record is now, we believe, made. Can any one state the TOt)ceB8 in 
former times ? Turning at random to several pages of the Ely Episcopal Registers, 

find the number of exchanges actually in excess of institutions pure and simplel 

tliereisinBp./ ' " -^ "-

Ely issuing a Commission to certain beneficed Clerks to expedite an exchange, which 
points to a definite course of action and Episcopal control and recognitionrED.] 



Samuel Lindset, Minister of Stratford, Essex. — The following is 
extracted from the Parish Eegister of Eingeshall, Suffolk : — 

Anno Domini 1669. 
Burr : That Reverend & anchient godly Divine Mr. Sammuell Lindsey 
ffellow of Clare Hall in Cambridge <fe Minister of Stratford in 
£s8ex & Prebend in extraordinary was buried in Eingshall 
Chancell Aprill the 5th Day. 

Any further information about this theologian will be acceptable to

The Manor House of Hovells, Essex. — Can any reader of the 
East Anglian throw light upon the origin of the name HovfUs, Hotfi^ld, 
or Ho/vile, as applied to the Manor House of Great Coggeshall, Essex ? 
Was this name derived from the residence there of a branch of the 
ancient SuflFolk Manorial Family of Hovell, or of the Hallingbury 
Hauviles ?

The Church Key figured in the Register. — Hearne says, " The 
figure of the Key of the West door of the Church was put down in the 
register, a thing frequently practised by the Ancients at the delivery of 
the Church Keys to the Ostiarii." I have not yet been able to find any 
examples of this fact, and should be very grateful if any reader of the 
East Anglian can supply me with an instance of its occurrence. Being 
a collector of keys, and endeavouring to gather what information I can 
connected with them, it would be of great interest to me.

A Remarkable Controvbrst relating to Tithes. 

A passage in the life of Obadiah Sedgwick, rector of Hampton 
after the Restoration, may not be without interest The following bill 
was exhibited bj him in the Exchequer Court in Trinity term 1674. 

"To the Right Honorable Thomas, Lord Viscount Latimer, Lord 
High Treasurer, &c., (be. 

(Extracted), 'Humbly complaining sheweth unto your honora, 
your oratour Obadiah Sedgwicke of Rampton, derke, debtor and 
acoomptant unto his mat^® as by the Records of this court it doth and 
may appear. That whereiis y': oratour was about the month of August 
in the yeare of Lord 1661 lawfully instituted into the Rectory of 
Roampton aforesaid, and hath eversince carefully and diligently per- 
formed the duties of his place as Rector of the said parish ' — all tythes, 
great and small belong to him, and it had been so ' from tyme whereof 
y« memory of man runneth not to the contmry.' * But now, soe it is, 
That Robert Rule of Rampton, aforesaid, yeoman, hath for Three years 
ending at Easter last past, binn farmer & occupier of divers and severall 
lands, meadows, pastures, & severall other feeding grounds, and alsoe 
one orchard and dovehouse within the said parish of Rampton and 
tythable places therof. And hath also kept <fe depastured in every of 
y« said Three yeares uppon the said meadowes, lands, & feeding 
grounds greate number of milch cowes and sheepe which said cowes 
have yearly yielded milk there, and have had there divers calves, and 
y« sheep have had there divers lambs, and have yielded much more 
profitt by their wooll, which the said Robert Rule hath there shared, 
and yearly taken. And he hath kept greate store of swine, geese and 
henns, which swine have brought forth yearly great number of Piggs, 
and the geese & henns great number of yong. And likewise his dove 
house has yielded great number of pidgeons, and his orchard great 
quantities of seversJl sorts of fruit, namely for thirtie cowes which he 
bad kept within the parish, in every year he ought to pay your orator 
seven shillings & sixepence att the rate of threepence a cow for <fe 
in lieu of tythe of the milk, also the cowes had every year Thirties 
calves, the tyth whereof in every year were well worth twentie shillings. 
Also he had ft depastured tenn score ewes which had every year tenn 
score lambs the tyth whereof being worth yearly three pounds, and 
tenn score guest sheepe, in every of the said three years, the tyth wooll 
whereof both guest sheep and ewes being well worth yearlie ffortie 
shillings. Sowes which have had Piggs In every year the tyth whereof 
being worth yearlie eight shillings, divers geese and henns the tyth 
whereof worth ffive shillings, one orchard the tyth whereof yearlie 
worth sixe shillings, one dovehouse the tyth whereof yearlie tenu 



shillings. And likewise the said Bobert Rule bath withheld & not 
paid the oblations due for himself, and his family coming yearly to two 
shillings. Of & for all of which cowes &c, the said Eobert Bule 
ought to have paid unto your orator, the tytbes in every yeare of the 
said three yeares, either in kinde or in some accustomable payment in 
leiu thereof. And ought likewise to have come unto your oratooF 
yearly att Easter, trulie to reckon with and pay unto yonr oratcmr 
according to their several conditions, wherein the said Eobert hath 
yearlie failed ... He also combining & confederating with divers other 
persons a» y^t unknown to your orator to defraud orato^* of the said 
tythes, doth altogether refuse to give any satisfaction for same . . . 
whereby divers other tenants and occupiers of land within the parish of 
Hampton are encouraged to detain the customary payments of tythes.' 

He prays that the said Rule may be compelled by a writ of 
8ub*poena to declare upon oath the exact number of his cows and other 
tithable property during the same period, so that he may know exactly 
what amount to claim. At the bottom of the bill is written ^ffiat br^e 
de s^pa.* * Let a writ of subpoona be issued,' but there is no answer or 
schedule attached to the bill. 

This document gives one some idea as to how a parson reckoned 
up his tithes 220 years ago. I do not remember having heard the 
expression 'guest sheep' amongst the farmers of Cambridgeshire at 
the present day.^ The defendants- objection to paying tithes appears to 
have been a conscientious one, for from the Recusant Rolls we find that he 
was a Nonconformist of some sort. Robert Rule, husbandman, of Rampton, 
sometimes alone, and sometimes in company with his wife Susanna, was 
convicted of Nonconformity ('refusing to attend worship at the parish 
church without reasonable excuse'), at least twenty times between 
1675. and 1683. On one occasion he had justice dispensed to him, by 
the notorious Scroggs, viz: at the autumn Assises at Cambridge in 
1680. In the following winter he was fined £120 for not attending 
church for the six months following July 11th, 1681. In 1683 he owed 
£220 for such fines. He could have had very little to spare for tithes. 
The pertinacity with which he was convicted, is only equalled in 
Cambridgeshire by the cases of Joseph Oddey gent, of Willingham, 
Independent, and William Tempest gent of Whaddon, a Roman 

W. M. Palmer. 
* ' Gueet sheep' are ewet that have no lambe : the term is still in use.— Ed. 

There is a record in the Ely Episcopal Register of Thos. de Arundel 
(27 July, 1386), that in consequence of repeated complaints that tithes 
were frequently paid on the crops collected in garhis, leaving upon the 
ground to be a^rwards collected with rakes, a large if not the larger 
portion, the Bishop had issued a mandate for the payment of tithes omnium 


bladorum tarn rastro congregatorum quam in garhu. Offenders were to 
be excommunicated. The lapse of three centuries however, had com- 
pletely changed the aspect of affairs, and excommunication was no 
longer dreaded. 

Suits, etc., to recover tithes negligently or fradulently withheld, 
were common enough when the custom was to pay in kind. We call to 
mind the refrain of an old song of " Harvest Home " in evidence of the 
spirit of the times : — 

" WeVe xsheated the Parson, we'll cheat him again. 
For why should the Vicar have one in ten." 

Obadiah Sedgwick, instituted to the Rectory of Rampton 16th 
Aug. 1661, on the presentation of the King (Chas. ii.) by lapse, and died 
Sep : 1685, was a man of peace who had the courage to claim his dues. 
He regularly signs the Register during his Incumbency jointly with the 
Churchwardens, one of whom was John Rule — doubtless a near relation 
of the recusant, possibly a son. The earliest date of the dilapidated 
Register is 1674, so that there is no means of tracing the relationship. 
John Rule married in 1682, and a son was bom to him in 1684 and 
named Robert, and a daughter, Susanna, in 1685, the Christian 
names being identical with those of the recusants.

There are only two Subsidy Rolls in the Public Record Office of 
the reign of Henry iii. One of them is here printed, the other gives 
the names of the persons assessed in the hundred of Chesterton. There 
is no date on either of them, and it is only by the character of the 
handwriting that one can approximately be 6xed. Mr. Salisbury is of 
the opinion that the date of the following roll is about 1250.

Ditton Camojs and Ditton Valoynes are the two manors of Wood 
Ditton, formerly belonging to families of those names. Oxcroft is a 
manor partly in the parish of West Wratting and partly in Balsham. 
Oarlton-cum-Willingham belonged to the Prior of St. Pancras at Lewes. 
Noshefield is an endship of Shudy Camps. The name occurs as early as 
1179, in which year is this entry on the Pipe Roll: — "Galfridus de 
Caumpes et Willelmus Felings debent Cs pro recto de feodo j militis in 
Burewell and Osheifeld.'' Berk ham may be a bad mistake of the scribe 
for Berklow, but more likely it stands for Bergham (now Barham), where 
an alien priory once stood. Great and Little Linton, and Barham, are 
now accounted one parish. Pap worth St. Peter, is either an error, or 
the dedication festival has been changed, for it is now P. St. Everard ; 
and was thus put down in Pope Innocent's Valor of 1 255. '* East " 
Stanton is of course Long Stanton. " West " Stanton would be Fen 
Stanton in Huntingdonshire. Sumorden and Nortmordun are Steeple 
and Gilden-Morden respectively. 

Of the names which are * wanting ' in the above list, it is probable 
that Balsham, Westley, Fenditton, Horningsea, Willingham, Impington, 
Hardwick, Gransden, Stapleford, Newton, and Hauxton, are included in 
the sum allotted to the Abbey of Ramsey. Hampton is evidently included 
in the sum at which the liberties of the Bishop of Ely are asaeBsed, or 
with Over, Rnapwell, GraYely, and Ellsworth are pxxtbably indaded 


in the liberties of Phillip de Insula. For the absence of Coton, 
Maddinglej Milton and Histon, it is not so easy to account. Histon 
St. Etheldreda at this time belonged almost entirely to the monastery 
of Eynesham in Oxfordshire. I do not know at present where the lands 
of the Bishop of Lincoln were situated, but the Bishop of Eochester had 
considerable possessions in Isleham.* That place seem to be as highly 
rated as one would expect. The assessment of the possessions of Ely 
and Banisey in a lump, has caused many of the towns in which they had 
land, to be put down for a very small amount, such towns for instance 
as Melboum, Foxton, Triplow, and Girton. This grouping together of 
monastic possessions has much shortened the list of towns, but partly 
to make up for this it will be observed that there is an addition of nine 
taxable units to those which exist at the present time ; Linton, Hoking- 
ton, and Ditton, are each divided into two, whilst Nostrefield, Barham, 
Malketon (now joined with Orwell), Clopton (now joined with Croyden), 
Kneesworth (now with Bassingboum), and Stow Engaine (now Stow- 
cum-Quy), are reckoned as separate "villatae." It should be noted, 
however, that Clopton and Malketon were, in 1250, ecclesiastical 
parishes, each with its own church and rector. 

The Isle of Ely is not included in this rate, as in these early days it 
was quite distinct from the county. 
Meldreth, RoysUm, W. M. Palmer. 

* Thorpe's Registram Roffen$t contains some important records concerning this 
place, going back to Saxon times. 

[It in interesting to note the curions fact, that without being a double dedication, 
the ancient dedication of Papworth St. Everard is St. Peter, while Fapworth St. 
Agnes is St John Baptist, ana so known at the present day. — Ed.]

Merrill (ante 220). — This family appears to have resided at Little 
Coggeshall. I have the notes of the sermons preached at the funeraU 
of Bobert Merrills, 1674, and of his widow 1683, also of Eobert Merrils^ 
singleman, 1689. Nicholas Merrill was living in the same parish circa 
1660 {vide History of Coggeshall). 

CoggeihalL G. F. Beaumont. 


HovBLL Family. — Any persons who, in their reading or investigations 
may have come across notices of the old Suffolk (and Norfolk) family of 
HovBLL (other than references in the East Anglian )y are respectfully 
asked to communicate the same to the Very Rev. De Berdt Hovell, 
The Deanery, Naj)ier, New Zealand. Extracts from Parish Registers, 
copies of charters, deeds or monumental inscriptions, drawings of arn^ 
from monuments, and lists of wills in the Suffolk and Norfolk Registries^ 
would be most thankfully received and acknowledged. 

PiCTURBSQtrB Old Inn Signs at Scolb, Norf., and elsewhere. — As 
all traces of the once famous " White Hart " sign-post at Scole seem to 
have disappeared, I was particularly pleased the other day while turning 
over the pages of a very interesting little volume, " Fragments of Two 
Centuries," by Mr. Alfred Kingston of Boyston, to find (although just 
outside the East Anglian limit) that at Barley, Herts., there still exists 
an inn sign, "The Fox and Hounds," stretching from one side of the 
road to the other, described as " perhaps the most perfect specimen in 
existence." A full-page woodcut represents the hounds in full pursuit 
of the fox (who makes for a sort of kennel in the thatched roof), 
followed by the huntsmen. There is no sort of ornamentation, either 
in the post itself, or the beam over which the run is made, both being 
quite plain, consequently it is in every way inferior to the elaborate 
Scole sign. Someone speaks of these signs as a sort of triumphal arch 
in honor of Bacchus. I shall be glad to learn upon whose authority 
this remark rests. The Scolo sign is said to have been erected 'by a 
wealthy Norwich merchant at great cost. It seems a strange proceedmg 
to expend so large a sum upon a country inn sign. Are the particulars 
known ? What other signs of this class are known to have existed in 
East Anglia ?

Seventeenth Century View op the State of the Clergy (pp. 144^ 
240). — The Bedfordshire Return was taken from a ms. in the Lincoln 
Diocesan Registry. It includes the whole of the then Diocese of Lincoln^, 
and has we believe been printed for the most part in various publioationa 
relating to the respective' Counties by Mr. Alfred Gibbons, f.b.a. 



The following inventory has been copied from a paper roll in the 
Cottonian Collection in the British Museum, Charter No. xiij, 13. It is 
thus described in the official Catalogue. "Inventory of Plate and 
Jewels in the Cathedral Priory of Ely, signed by Robert [Wells alias 
Steward last] Prior [and first dean of] Ely. Mention is made of the 
Chapel of Bishop Nicholas West, who died in 1533, hence the roll is 
later than his death. Probably made at the time of the surrender in 
1539. Bnglish" It will be observed that this description is not quite 
correct. In the first place it makes no mention of the list of relics, 
which form the most interesting part of the inventory ; and secondly, 
only the latter half of the roll is written in English. As far as I am 
aware, this document is now printed for the first time. It is slightly 
imperfect at the head, the title and ends of some of the first lines being 
rotted away. 

Another inventory of church furniture at Ely was printed by 
John Nicholls in his interesting but scarce work. Illustrations of the 
manners and expences of antient times in England^ 1797, 4to. This is 
entitled " An inventory of Plate, jewels and ornaments of the Cathedral 
Church of Ely, which were left in the custody of Mr. Robert Wells, 
guardian there, after the surrender of the monastry into the Ring's 
hands (made November 20th 31 Hen 8) exclusive of what had been 
taken away for the King's use." The source of this document, which is 
wholly in English, is given as "Miscellaneous MS. 20, p. 341," in the 
library of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. In this list there is of 
course no mention of relics, various kinds of vestments take up the 
greater part of the space. This inventory is also printed in Bentham's 
"Ely" (1812 edition) dn an unnumbered page at the beginning of the 
second volume. There is another short inventory of plate — said to 
belong to Ely, but has no heading — in the P.R.O, viz: Q.R. Church 
Goods \%, but it is only one small sheet of paper.

The church of Ely was rich in possessing the bodies of three saints, 
besides that of St. Etheldreda. The body of St. Withburga, sister of 
St Etheldredti, which was translated to Ely from East Dereham, July 
8th ; the body of St. Sexburga, another sister of the foundress, and 
wife of the King of Kent, who died second Abbess, July 6th ; and the 
body of St. Ermenilda daughter of the last, who succeeded her as abbess. 
JBenthanif i., 62, 78. It is rather strange that there should be no 
mention of the latter amongst the relics. An interesting account of the 
circumstances which led to the presence of the relics of St. Alban at 
Ely, will be found in one of J. A. Froude's Short Studies. According to 
Beniham (i., 190), Bishop Goodrich in 1535 issued strict injunctions 
that all relics in his diocese were to be destroyed.

To the Kyng o'* sov'eign lorde.

The Earliest Cambridgeshire Subsidy Roll (pp. 266 — 269) 
Errata. — In the Cambs. Subsidy Roll (pp. 266 — 269) are several errors, 
owing we regret to say, to the proof not having been revised. The 
heading should of course appear as above, while the first line should 
read * There are only two Cambs. Subsidy Rolls,' etc. 

p. 266, for Flemedie read Flemedic, for Swavesney read Swaveahey, 
p. 267, in the Hundred of Stapelho, the amount against Saham (Soham) should 
be ^i 7a. Hid.

In the remarks relating to the towns * wanting ' (pp. 268-9), the 

two first sentences should read : — 

'* Of the names which are ' wanting ' in the above list, it is raobable that Balsham, 
Westley, Fenditton, Homingsea, WilUngham. Impington, Hardwick, Gransden. 
Stapleford, Newton and Hauxton, are included in the sum at which the liberties of 
the Bishop of Ely are assessed, and Over, Knapwell, Gravely and Ellsworth are also 
probably included in the sum alloted to the Abbey of Ramsey. Rampton is evidently 
uiduded in the liberties of Philip de Insula." 




Richard Holdfeld, Bell-founder. — In Notes andQuerieSy 8th Series, 
Vol. ix., pp. 428, 513, some correspondence has been going on about this 
bell-founder, who cast Little Shelford 3rd, and Chesterton treble and 2nd 
in 1612, and Trinity College Clock-bell in 1610. Mr. E. H. Coleman 
writes that Holdfeld's foundry was at Cambridge, that his earliest bell is 
dated 1599, and that he died in 1612. Any evidence confirmatory of 
these facts will be gratefully received by me. In my Church Bells of 
Cambridgeshire (p. 85), I have conjecturally assigned him to Cambridge.

The Manor (or Manors) of Wyverstonb. — Was there more than 
one manor at Wyverstone, Suffolk, in the time of William the 
Conqueror? Some authorities state that Gilbert de Bland was Lord of 
Wyverstone then. The Duchess of Cleveland, however, in her " Roll of 
Battle Abbey" (Vol. ii., p. 151), says that "Richard Hovel held a 
Lordship at Wigvereston {sic) in that county (Suffolk) of Baldwin, Abbot 
of Bury " at the time of the Conquest. Can any of the readers of the 
East Anglian explain ? It is evident that the Ho veil's held a manor at 
Wyverstone somewhat later, for Sir Robert Hovel obtained a fair and 
market for the place, where he is stated to have been Lord, in 1272 
{vide Cart. Harl. 58. i. 30). 


Kettle op Suffolk (pp. 192, 224, 256). — The only entries I can 
find of the Kettle family in Chattisham are the following : — 

John Ketle sonne of John Ketle & Elizabeth his wife was baptized 
the XVI of July A^ p^^dict. (1570). 

William Ketle sonne to John Ketle and Elizabeth his wife was 
baptized the fiste day of January A© eod. (1577). 

Susanne Kettle ye wife of Richard Ktle of Washbrook was buryed 
y« eleventh of Septbr A^ eod. (1613). 

The registers have been very badly kept, a folio is wanting, and 
there is no entry of names from the end of 1586 to end of 1588. If I 
come across any more of that name I will forward them. 

Did the Kettle family occupy Chattisham Hall ?

Ersh'm Hamlet (p. 224). — Earsham, near Bungay, was anciently so 

In the Thorington Register is the following : —

Elizabeth Kettle of the same, singlewoman.

The Church is a large and handsome building of mixed Decorated 
and Perpendicular architecture, the latter preponderating ; it includes 
nave with embattled clerestory and aisles, south porch and west tower, 
and a spacious chancel with ancient vestry to the north. The nave roof 
(lately under restoration) is plain, with canted tie beams carrying 
kingposts, and the eastern bay retains traces of colouring in red and 
green, and black and white spiral decoration. The Perpendicular 
chancel screen is elaborately carved, with delicately executed birds 
serving for crockets on the principal arch, and the major cusps worked 
into gilded suns. The ribs of the half groin that carried the loft remain. 
The screen has been partly repainted. On the south side is the doorway 


to the staircase, and there is also a (now blocked) entrance to the rood 
loft on the opposite side of the chancel arch. Evidently the rood stood, 
as at Uffbrd, on a detached beam above the screen, of which the end is 
to be seen embedded in the south wall. Parclose screens, also of 
Perpendicular work and richly carved, enclose chapels at the east end of 
the aisles. They have been repainted and repaired, not very accjurately. 
Several old benches remain in the nave, with carved poppy heads, and in 
the chancel some pannelled fronts of the old stalls, together with two 
stall-ends, — one shewing on its elbow an angel in alb and amice holding an 
open book, — the other a bearded head. The chancel is ceiled, and 
contains a large piscina with cinque foliate head, with the adjoining 
window sill lowered for a sedile. A second piscina and sedile of similar 
style are in the north chapel. The door to the vestry is of massive oak 
in two leaves, with Decorated tracery, and there is also a heavy inner 
door defended with thick iron plates. Two straight-backed Elizabethan 
chairs are placed in the sacrarium. There are many fragments of old 
glass in the aisle windows but no figures or shields of arms. The roof 
of the north aisle is handsomely carved, but that spanning the opposite 
aisle is plain and rough, where also stone corbels that carried an earlier 
roof are to be seen. On Aug. 21. 1644, the church had a notable 
visitor in the person of Will™ Dowsing, who remarks " There was St. 
Catherine with her wheel. Many superstitious pictures were done down 
afore I came." "There was Marias on the Church door," pleasantly 
proceeds the amiable man, and these " Marias " may still be seen on the 
south door within the porch. The door is of very late work, elaborately 
traceried in compartments, and has " our Lady's " monogram several 
times repeated, but mutilated, and the dedicatory inscription erased. In 
the porch there is a niche for holy water, but the bowl is removed. 
Two small niches in south front of porch have had cherub heads inserted 
in them, and a death's head was at the same time no doubt fixed at the 
apex of the Decorated inner doorway. In the low gallery under the 
tower there are two curious old braziers with pierced covers, on tripod 
stands, formerly used for heating the church. One of the north aisle 
windows has had its stone jambs and muUions removed, and replaced by 
terra-cotta, with a wheel and other conventional designs worked thereon, 
as at Barham. On a pew door in south aisle the date 1601 has been 
cut Near the chancel arch, on each side of which are two plain niches, 
hangs the Royal escutcheon of arms 

" C.-ff. God. save King Charles the Second,*' 

The pulpit is modem, but some old linen-fold patterned panels and 
a small 17th century carving of the Annunciation have been incorporated 
in it. The Perpendicular font at the west end of the nave is octagonal, 
with square sunk panels on its sides containing the four evangelistic 
symbols, feathered angels holding blank shields filling in the alternating 
panels. At the lower corners of the bowl there are angelic heads, whose 

294 THB BAST anolun; OB, 

wings spread over the intervening spaces of its under side. The shaft 
is supported at the principal angles by four sejant lions, and wild men 
holding clubs are set at the four alternate corners. It is raised on one 
step, and furnished with a good canopied oak cover, considerably 

There are no inscriptions bearing date prior to the Reformation, 
but two old gravestones of mediaeval shape in the chancel have been 
reversed, perhaps to hide their crosses. There are also seven stones 
with matrices of brasses : — 

1 . In the chancel floor, a marble slab with figure of a priest in 
cope, inscription at foot, a scroll on each side of the head, and two 
scrolls above. (Also an inscription plate, probably marking a later 
interment, across the middle of the figure.) 

2. In the nave, a marble slab with figure in cope, a chalice over- 
head, inscription plate below, and four rosettes in comers of stone. 

3. In the nave, an ecclesiastic, apparently in academic gown and 
hood, a scroll proceeding from his mouth, and narrow inscription plate 

4 and 5. In nave, and 6 in north chapel, bore simply inscriptions. 
7. In the porch, a worn slab with figure and inscription ; matrix 
too worn to indicate calling, &c. 

At the west end of the nave is a stone inscribed : — 

Here Resteth the Body | of Thomas Neave Gent, late | of Needham 
Market who | Dyed the 14«» of Aug. 1680. | 

Next this is a stone so worn as to be quite illegible, only oue or 
two scattered letters being visible, with date 1783. Upon a black 
marble adjoining this are carved the arms of Meadows impaling Chaplin: —

East of this is another inscribed stone : —

Sarah Cooke | who departed this Life | the 19*^ of March 1754 | In the 
27*** Year of her Age. | Here lieth | Robert Cooke, Surgeon, j He died

their labours | And their works do follow them. Revel. 14. 17. | Sarah 


Cooke Ob<^ April S^- 1780 | iEtat 86. | The Memory of the just is

Next this is a black marble slab, lettered 

John Mott A.B. | Died Feb^ 6^ 1748 I Aged 21 Years. I Eliz. 
Newman | Died ¥eW 19«^ 1766 | Aged 67. | 

Before the screen lies another black marble ledger stone, with this 
inscription : — 

"Here Resteth the Body of Robert | Moore late of Nedham 
Market | Woollen draper who dyed the | 26*^ of May An<*. Dom 1670. 

I Here Also Lieth ElizV^ Moore | Wife to the above^ Robert Moore |

I Aged 35 Years. | Here Lieth y« Body of | Sarah Moore | who departed

In the N. aisle floor is an inscribed slab : —

Marriott | late of Needham Market | who departed this Life | Feb^ 

10^^ 1757 Aged 72. | And also those of | Susanna Raymond | her Niece 
I who departed this Life | Sep*»^ 11**^ 1761 Aged 32. | 

In the centre passage of the chancel lies a stone with inscription : —

Needham Market | who died the 25"» of Nov^' 1778 \ Aged 43 Years. 

Also the Body of | James Bedingfield | Son of the said Bridget Turner

Aged 26 Years. | Here also lieth the Body of | John Turner | who died 

the 6*»» of Feb^ 1790 | Aged 50 Years. | 

Below the altar rail on south side is a marble ledger 

Sacred | to the Memory of | Mary Selby Gumey | Widow of Peter 

Ourney Esq: | of the Island of St. Vincent | who departed this Life | 

the 21 of March 1819 | Aged 60 Years. | Also of | Amelia Kettleby 

Johnson | Sister of the above | who departed this Life | the 11*^ of 

August 1833 I Aged 64 Years. | 

A large black marble stone west of this is carved with a shield, now 
so worn that the charges are unrecognizable — 

Sacred to the Memory of | the Rev. Charles Davy M.B. | Rector of 
this Parish and of Combs, | (formerly Fellow of Gonville and Caius | 
College, Cambridge, | & aftei-wards Rector of Greeting St. Peter.) | He

78 Years, | In humble hope to obtain through the merits of his |

who died | January 21"* 1844 Aged 85 Years. 


To the same effect is a framed mural brass oyer the vestry door : —

Gonville and Caius College Cambridge. | He died March 7*^ 1836, Aged 
78 Years. | Also of Ann his wife | who died January 21'»* 1844 Aged 85

Several inscribed stones lie within the altar rail : on the south side 

In Expectatione Diei Supremi | Hie jacet Tho» Wilkinson CI" | de

Market | Also of | Helen Sandilands | His beloved Wife | who departed 
this Life | the 23^- of Jan^y- 1837 | Aged 69 Years. | 

A member of the same family lies next to north : — 
Here in holy Hope | of resurrection to the life eternal | rest the 
remains of | Sophia Uvedale, | Daughter of Samuel Uvedale | late 
Rector of this Parish, | died August 23«i 1819 | Aged Eighty six 
Years. | Her pious belief in the Scriptures of God | and her trust in his 
providence were | firm and evident, and to such conviction | was added 
the Ornament of a meek | and quiet spirit. | " Blessed are the merciful 
for they shall obtain mercy." | "Blessed are the pure in heart | for of 
such is the Kingdom of God." | 

Others of this family are mentioned on a marble tablet on east wall, 
north of the altar : — 

Sacred | to the memory of | Margaret the deeply regretted | wife of 
I the Rev^ Ambrose Uvedale | rector of this parish. | She was the only 
surviving daughter | of Williani Cleland | late of the County of Essex 
Esq. R.N. I Died May the 6**^ 1810 | ^Et. suee 78. | Beneath this tablet

He died August 21"*^ 1818 | Aged 84 Years. | He succeeded his father, 
the Revd | Samuel Uvedale who was rector [ of this parish | 52 years. |

emblazoned shield, Qrly. arg. & sa., in 2^^ & S^ quarters 3 fleur de lys

The initials S.P. cut in a square stone in the floor mark Mrs.

the grave of their child : —

I of Needham Market Gentleman | to preserve the Remains | of his 
only Child | George Gresham Paske | who was snatched from him | on 
the 1»* of Dec^ 1766 | at the tender Age | of 4 Years & 5 Mo : | He was 
a Child, tho' so young, | so Remarkably engaging that | the Loss of him 
was to his Parents | almost intolerable, and to the | Neighbourhood in 
General more | than commonly affecting. | 

The south chapel is almost filled by a large square pew in which a 
wooden flooring has been laid, but a large marble tombstone is left 
uncovered, with this inscription : —

On the same wall is a tablet with funeral urn carved in low relief, 
upon which is written —

Obadiah Sedgwick : (pp. 257,8, etc.) the early Sale by Auction 
OF HIS Books. — An interesting fact in connection with Obadiah 
Sedgwick, Kector of Ranipton, Cambs., is the sale by public auction 
of his library by the famous Edward Millington, which took place 
at the Black Swan, Trumpiugton, near Cambridge, March 29th, 
1686. The printed catalogue is a small 4to, each work being sold 
separately. A copy, bound up with numerous other book catalogues, is 
in the library of St. John's College, Cambridge, and the price that each 
book realized is neatly written at the side. This is one of the very 
earliest sales by auction that ever took place, books being some years 
in advance of other saleable goods. We have seen it stated that the 
first recorded sale was at Oxford, Feb. 28th, 1686, for the disposal of 
books, and the next at London in 1699 (that of the Bishop of St. David's). 
This is incorrect, for the sale of the libraries viri cujusdam literati took 
plac§ at the " Pelican " in Little Britain as early as 1676. In this way 
the books of Greenhill, Manton, Stockden and other well-known 
Puritan divines were sold. The books of Cambridge men sold by 
Millington were either diposed of at Sturbridge Fair or at Trumpiugton 
" Black Swan." The latter seems to have been a great place for these 
book sales, which strangely enough do not appear to have taken place 
in Cambridge. 


The Manors op Weston and Hovell's, Chediston. — In Kirby's 
"Topographical and Historical Description of Suffolk," 1820, p. 435, is 
the following: — "Weston Market, — formerly the Lordship of Hugh 
Hovel ; afterwards it descended to the family of Bokenham, and from 
them to the Tyrells." Can any of the readers of the East Anglian state 
when, and under what circumstances, the Lordship passed from the 
Hovells to the Bokenhams ? Sir Robert Hovell obtained the privilege of 
a fair and market for Weston, from Henry iii., in 1263. — Sir Hugh 
Hovell was Lord of Ho veil's Manor, Chediston, in 1287, — when and 
under what circumstances did this last-named manor pass from the

Francis Myngay, m.p. for Dunwich 1601. — I shall be glad of 
any information as to his identity. He was probably the Francis 
Myngay who was returned for Southwark in 1624, but whose election 
was declared void. There were Mingays at Arminghall in Norfolk (see 
Vintation of Norfolk^ Harl. Soc. Vol.)

Ely Fabthings and the Ely Ward Penny. — According to Blome- 
field, every one who in a.d. 1154 kept a fire in Chesterton, Cambs., was 
bound to pay a farthing to St. Peter's Altar in Ely Cathedral. This 
payment was known by the name of " Ely Farthings." The fourth 
farthing used to be paid to the Castle of Norwich, under the term " Ely 
Ward Penny." Where can further information be obtained concerning 
these payments ? Any particulars will be acceptable.

The Hovbll Family. — In the parish of Dry Drayton, Cambs., now 
or formerly preserved among the papers in the church there, is a copy 
of the Will of Thos. Fowler of Sidney College, Cambridge, proved 22nd 
Sep., 1680, formerly curate, wherein he bequeaths, upon the death of 
Mrs. Susan Idle, widow, of Felstead, Essex, a farm in reversion " to my 
nephew Thomas Hovell alias Smith." It may be well to note that one, 
John Fowler, was instituted to the rectory of the neighbouring parish 
of Rampton in 1812. 

Pedigrees of the Hovell's of Hillington appear in Blomefield*s 
Norfolk, Vol. IV., p. 566 j also in Parkin's Freebrvdge, p. 104.

Henry de Hauvill was sojourning at Cambridge, a.d. 1220, with 
the King's falcon's from Norway. {Rot, Claus., 6 Hen. iii.) 

John Hovill alias Smith, was a copyholder of the manor of

The Manor of Hovbllb (Holfield, &c.) at Chelmsford. — In 
Beaumont's History of Coggeshall the manor is also referred to as 
Oldjield, and some suggestion is made as to Oldville being the original 
designation. Robert Hovell and Margaret his wife resided there in 
1249. Possibly the name as a surname may owe its origin to the 
locality, once the site of a Roman villa.

Nbbdham Mabkbt. 

Bishop Wm. Grey of Ely, who in 1460 built the chapel of St. John 
Baptist at Needham, for some reason departed from the almost invariablie: 
English custom of orientating the churches, and built this north and 
south. His arms, ( ) a lion rampant ( ) in a border engrailed ( ) 
are still to be seen carved, together with those of his see, on the old 
priest's door in W. chancel wsdl. The church consists of chancel and 
nave, with west porch which has been rebuilt and furnished with modem 
clock turret ; the north gable is roughly built as though a tower had 
originally been contemplated. The building has the unusual and inte- 
resting feature of a low wooden quasi-derestory which had been much 
mutilated and cut away to make room for a plaster ceiling, but was 
opened up and carefully restored in 1880. There is no chancel arch, 
but a rise of one step to chancel, one to the sacrarium, and the altar is 
raised on a stone footpace. The entrance to the rood staircase remains 
in the E. wall. Some curious old lettering in stone and flint may be 
seen on the exterior of the building; upon the W. buttress is €^SSi9 
S9^ I^^SC 99^CS63 9$: aS^. Two of these buttresses have 
canopied niches. Above a stone tablet in the same wall, facing the 
high street is a small draped female head, and on the tablet itself a 
much decayed inscription, said to be 

Sta fxft sib far Qtstt 
fat 1^6 st ivti ioh/t ip$ ylssje 
gob ttbmii (9 taxftxtfi^ 
%* Stbt ^w^t (Y) in mi^t* 

Another square stone over a buttress on E. side of the church appears 
to have also borne an inscription. Two buttresses set diagonally at the 
S. angles of chancel contain niches, with the initials "da" in the 
spandrels of one of them. Dowsing, no doubt, had some sympathisers 
here who forestalled him in the needful purgation, as he only ordered' 
two iron crosses and a ' stoneing cross ' to be taken down at his visitation. 
A clean sweep has been made of all the ancient furniture and fittings. 
There are some bits of old coloured glass in a small window on the east 
side of the chancel. There are only three memorial inscriptions, all 

1. A brass under the window behind the altar : — 

A.D. 1880. This window is devoted to the Glory of God and in 
loving memory of Frederick Hayward and Margaret Elizabeth his wife 
by their five surviving children. 


2. A brass plate on the organ : — 

To the Praise of Qod and in memory of Jane Jessie Elfrida | his 
beloyed wife who died April 1882, this organ is dedicated by Arthur 
John Walker. | 

9. A tablet of coloured marble and mosaic .on E. nave wall : — 

To the Glory of God | and in loving memory of | Major William 
* Dods I the Angels were added to the hammer beams | of the Nave Roof 
of this Church by his Widow | Jane Dods of Uvedale in this Parish, | 
September 1892. | 

[A valuable illustrated paper on Needham Market Chapel, by the 
Rev. W. H. Sewell of Yaxley, appears in Vol. iv. Proceedings of Suffolk 
Institute of Archaeology, bd]. 


This, like Needham Market, is a chapelry of Barking, and the 
ohapel dedicated to St. Andrew has lately been rebuilt in the Decorated 
style, as a thankoffering. There is no structural chancel, but the east 
end of the small building is raised two steps above the rest, with a rise 
of one more to the altar. The ancient piscina in the south wall is 
preserved, but all the stonework, pulpi^ circular stone font, and 
benches with carved poppy-heads, are modem. The one bell hangs 
in a little turret over the west gable. Dowsing notes here, "Three 
Crosses in the Chancel, on the wall, and a Holy Water Font there ; 
and the Chancel to be levelled by Saturday Se'ennight after." The 
carved oak reredos, has figures of pur Lord as the Good Shepherd, 
and SS. Andrew and Peter. The only inscriptions in the church are 
upon three brass plates - —

The inhabitants of Soham must have been of a restless disposition. 
Riots appear to have been frequent here daring the draining and 
enclosure of the fens (see Fenland Notes and Queries), During the 
Civil War the ejected vicar gave so much trouble tiiat Parliament 
soldiers had to be dispatched hitherward to keep him in order. And 
from the following documents it will be seen that when the restoration 
came round, there were ominous traces of disaffection on the other side. 
(1.) Camh. The deposition of Edward Staples of Soham in the county 
aforesaid yeoman taken upon oath the 4th day of November 1660 
before us Sr William Russell Kt and Samuel Thornton Esqre one of his 
majesty's justices of the Peace of the said county. 

Who deposeth and sayth that William Sharpe of Soham in the 
county aforesd after he had beene questioned and examined before 
Samuel Thornton Esq. He the sd Sharpe saide to this Deponent that 
he was betrayed, and I doubt by Thomas Howe, and further he deposeth 

signed Edward Staples 

(2.) ^The deposition of Thomas Howe of Soham taylor' taken on 
the same day before the same * two of his maties justices ibc' 

Who deposeth and sayth that alx)ut fourteene days since he being 
in the company of one Willin Sharpe and seeing of him have a Horse not 
fitt for his ordinary use, and hearing that he the sd Sharpe had sold divers 
goods to buy him, This Deponent did. aske him if he were not for a troop 
horse, the sd Sharp saide he was, but a freind of his was to have him 
first to ride fifty or three score miles. He further deposeth that upon 
the first and second dayes of this instant November this deponent and 
the said Sharpe being in Company together, the said Sharpe did aske 
this deponent if he knew what strength the Kinge had to guard him. 
This deponent made answere he did believe not above three or fewer 
Troopes, it being in the time of Peace, the sd Sharpe saide we shall doe 
well enough wt them then. This Depot, then saide to him then I 
perceive you intend to fall upon London first, the sd Sharpe saide they 
did indeed, for we have abundance of freuds there and likewise in the 
West, and further he deposeth that upon the second day of this instant 
November the sd Sharpe told him that his horse was come and desired 


faim to goe and see him att wch tyme this Deponent asked him i( 
Cropp (meaning his Horse) had brought him any good news, he the sd 
Sharpe saide he had. This Deponent then asked him if they did intend 
to go on with theire Designe, the sd Sharpe made answer they did. 
This deponent then asked him att what time, he the said Sharpe made 
answere againe as fast as they could, and did desire this deponent that

Church Dedications at Papworth, CAna (VoL vi. pp. 268-9.) — 
That these parishes have had different dedications at different times is^ 
I would submit, a mistake. Papworth Everard was so called from an 
early lord of the manor of the Everard family, or whose Christian name 
was Everard ; while the church was dedicated in honour of St, Peter, 



Papworth A.gnes was similarly so called, probably from a manorial lady 
80 named, while the church was dedicated to St John Baptist. There 
is no Saint Everard in the calender.

The following is an example of the curious local information with 
which the mss. of Cole, the antiquary of Milton, Cambs., abound : — 

"On August 30th, 1746, Saturday, died old Robert Norman a 
farmer of Cottenham of ye age as far as can be computed from ye court 
roDs of 102 years. He had scraped together about £10000 by his own 


industry & thrift, & contiuued coming to Cambridge Market regularly 
every Saturday till very soon before his death, but would allow himself no 
refreshment, no not so much as to alight off his horse, for fear of an expense, 
that would attend it, but went back again as soon as his business was 
done. I saw him with amazement in February last at Cambiidge in an 
excessive cold & bleak day wch he bid defiance to, when one of his sons, 
who was with him, would willingly have got under shelter, had his 
father permitted it. The Register of this parish was burnt in ye fire 
which consumed two thirds of this town on April 25th, 1676, & flakes 
of which it is said, flew as far as Ely, & ye fire was so scorching that the 
leads of this church were beginning to melt. It was put in the 
Cambridge Journals that Norman was about 96 years of age, but in 
1665 he was admitted to an estate, being of age, which must make him 
of ye aforesaid age of 102." AddiL MSS. 5802, p, 63 (d)

The following list of "divers" or "mixed" counties fines, which 
contain references to Cambridgeshire manors, &c., may prove useful as a 
supplement to the Calendar of Cambridgeshire Fines, which was edited 
by Mr. Walter Rye for the Cambridge Antiquarian Society, and has 
proved the most useful publication to all interested in the history of the 
county, since the appearance of the "Magna Britannia" of Messrs. 
Lysons. The list has been compiled from the Calendars of Le Neve 
in the Literary Search Room P.R.O. 

In the class of " unknown counties," it will be observed that several 
fines are mentioned, which have been removed to their proper places 
since the Calendar was made. Such are indicated in foot notes. Others 
in the same class, for instance Nos. I and 5 Edward ir., may not belong 
to Cambs. at all. 

It is purposed to continue this list down to the reign of Richard iii., 
when Mr. Rye's Calendar stops, and then, if an opportunity offers, to 
continue that Calendar from Hen. vii. onwards. 

\* The numbers at the end of each entry in this list refer to the 
number borne by corresponding fine, bound in bundles of 50.

* We would suggest that this word is intended to stand for * Parclose,* the screen 
separating a chantry chapel from the body of the church. The next entry refers 
to a crane brought to Foulsham, and as »St John's chapel on the north side of the 
choir in Elmham Church would doubtless have such a Parclose, the crane was 
perhaps used to lift the screen to facilitate some interment. KD.

ceedings at Shelford between people who ought to have known better.

Petition granted 21^ April 20 Hen. 8^ (? if not 7^} 

This is thanswer of William ffrevyle Gentilman to the bille of John 
Bouclyff clerk pson of moche Shelford. 

The seide William seith as to all ryots assemblies of people in 
fourme of Werre arraied assautes affraies manasses threting of liffe and 
deth and all other offences supposed by hym to be doone ageyus the 
Kingis lawes and peas, he is in noo thing thereof gilty and as to all the 
residue of the maters comprised in the seide bille, the seide William 
seith they ben maters determj^nable by the coen lawe, Whereunto he 
ought not to be putte to answer in this courte. Nevertheless for pleyn 
declaracion ef the trouthe and answer in the p^mysses, the seide William 
seith that he is, and at the tyme of the seide ryoti supposed was, owner 
and possessor of the seid toun of litill Shelford, and that a grete ryver 
depteth and boundeth the seide townes of moche Shelford and litell 
Shelford in the whiohe ryver the seid John Rouclyff the saide tyme of 
the seide ryote supposed with diverse othere scolers of Cambrigge to the 
nombre of lij psons were fysshyng, and as the seide Wiiliam walked 
peasibly and one of his ?vantz with hym by the seide ryver syde with- 
ynne the boundes of the seid town of liteel Shelford, & not knowing 
of the seide psons being there, came hym unwarer withynne the sight 
of the seide psons so fisshyng, and whan they sawe the seide William 
they seyde among them with a lowde voice, ' yonder goth the horeson 
that woorded yesterday with pson BouclyfT, let us nowe folowe hym and 
have hym, ffor nowe he is alone.' and upon that they showting and 
crieng pursued to have taken the seide William, and hym thanne and 
there assauted & ffrayed and putt hym in ieopardye of his life, and 
therupon di^ of the frvnts of the same William not exceding the nombre 
of vij or viij psons heering the seid grete noyse and showting came to 


understand wherfore it was, and whan the seid John Rouclyff and his 
seide riotous company pceyved that the seide William had onj help, 
they sent from thens for moo riotous psons which came thider to them 
with force and armes riotously in manfi of werr arraied, that is to sey 
with Jakkes, salettes, bowes, arwes, swerdes, billes glayves and other 
wepons of werre ageyns the Ringe's lawes and peas to the nombre of 
XX vj psons or moo, intending to mourdre and the seide William, whiche 
ryoto^s all came or the seide ryver in a bote into the seide towne of 
litell Shelford to assaute the seid William there being upon his owne 
se'^all grounde. And with the same force and ryote pulled downe 
hedges of the same William upon his seide se^all grounde to thentent 
to have comen the nexte weye to the seide William to mourdre and slee 
hym, and so they wold have done and put their malicious dovoire to 
the same unto the tyme that MaisV Roche Doctor of Divinite & other 
wurshipfull, & Weldisposed menne therof heering came thiddeer & 
advysed and entreted the saide riotours to departe at that tyme. And 
then the seide riotous reto^'ned home ageyn bostyng and reioysyug their 
seide riotous demeanyng, and yet daily doo. Withoute that that the 
seide William ffrevyle made any assaute or affraye upon the seide John 
Rouclyff nor ony of hys 8v*nts or thret or meflaced the same John 
or ony of hys sv^nts in mafl & forme as is conteyned in the 
seide bille. And furthermore the seide William seith that he nef sent 
none of his Sv^uts nor none other pson nor psons to the psonage of the 
seide John Rouclyff to destroy e or in ony mafi wise to hurte the same 
John Rouclyff in mafl or fo^'me as in the seide bille is surmitted all 
whiche maters the seid William ffrevyle is redy to pve as this courte 
will awarde, and he asketh ingement and f^Mth to be dismyssed oute of 
this courte with his reasonable costs and damages by hym susteigned 
because of his wrongefuU trouble and vexacion in this behalf. 

This is the Replicacon of Master John Rowclyfe to the answer of 
William ffrevill put into this court. 

The seid John Rowclife by ptestac5n not knowyng any thyng in the 
«eid answere to be trewe for replicacon to the same answere seyth that 
ef ry article and poynt conteyned in his seid bill is trewe and where the 
seid Willm for declaracon ferthermore hath seid by his answere that hee 
at the tyme of the seid first Riot conteyned in the seid bill was owner 
and possessour of the seid towne of lityll Shelford, and that A grete 
Ryver depteth and boundeth the seid townes of Michell Shelford and 
lityll Shelford in which River the seid John Rowclyfe at the tyme of the 
same Riot wyth dy^s other Scolers of Cambrigge to the nombre of xij 
psons weere fysshing ferthermore affermyng by the scune answere dy^s 
Riotts and unfittyng langages showtyng crying assautyng and brekyng 
of hegges to be don by the seid John Rowclyfe and the seid xij psons to 
the seid Will'^m ffrevill as by the seid .tinswere more at large, is sur- 
mytted, Therto seyth the seid John Rowclyfe that at the tyme of the 


note in the seid bill allegged, he wyth oon pson wjtb hym goyng by 
land nyghe to the seid Ryver wyth in the bownds of Michyll Shelford 
and iiij other psons ser vaunts of the same John Rowclyfe beyng in a 
Boote upon the seid Ryver wythin the same Bond wt net wyth them in 
peasyble mafi w*oiit any wepyns of Weere w* theym intendyng to fyssh 
wtin the seid Ryver w*in the same bonds of Mychyll Shelford, passed 
downward the seid streme and they beyng w^n the same streme and 
owt of the bounds of littil Shelford at that tyme not fyssyng, than and 
there came to hym the seid Masf Roocbe docf and oofl Mast^ Warthall 
clerk to entreat of accord and unite to be had for dy^s unfittyng 
langages and variaunces had bytweue the seid John Rowclyfe and 
Will*m ffrevyll the day next before the seid xij day of Novenibre and 
they so beyng in coicacon theerof theere and than came the seid WilUm 
ffrevyll w* difs psons wyth hym in greet nombre with force and 
armys in riottous wise arayed towards the seid John Rowclyf assawtyng 
and affraying him and his seid Sv^nts as by the seid bill is slugged 
intendyng to have mysentretyd betyn or slayn the said John Rowclyfe 
and his seid su'^nts at which tym the seid doctr Rooche and Masf 
Warthall seeyng the seid grete inconenients and jeapdes lykly to have 
ensewed went unto the seid Will*m ffrevill and by theyre wyse meanys 
and oondyt than had lettid and appeared as for that tyme theire seid 
malicous p^pos w^ut that the seid John Rowclyf is gylty of any Riot 
assawt affraye showtyng cr^yng brekyng of hegges or any other unlawful! 
demeanyng or behavyng Or send for any moo psons to murdre or slee 
the seid Will*m as by the seid answere is supposid And w*out that the 
same John Rouclyfe demeaned hym or behaved hym in the ^mysses 
other wyse than is conteygned in this Replicacon All which maters the 
seid John Rowclyfe is redy to pve as youre hyghnesse shall award hym 
to do and p»ieth that the seid Will»m ffrevill may be coinytted to ward 
for his seid Riot and unlawful! demeanyng and that he may be compelled 
to fynd sufficient suerte of his good beeryng hereaftyr to be had and 
ferthermore to do as to youre highnesse and the lords of youre most 
honorable councell shall be thought resonable and convenient

Although these documents appear amongst the records of the reign 
of Henry viii., they probably really belong to the previous reign. Com- 
pare the following dates. John Roclyff, d.d., is mentioned AddiL MSS. 
6826, p, 160, as having been called to convocation in 1474. He is there 
described as Rector of Shelford parva. I have found no record of his 
institution. In a list of Rectors of Great Shelford in Hill's " Churches 
of Cambridgeshire," he is called John Ratcliff. The William Frevile 
mentioned seems to have been he who was sheriff of Cambridgeshire in 
1481. He had a son William, but he was dead long before 1528, as we 
know from the -will of Robert, a ypunger son, made in 1520. A Richard 


Roche, fellow of King's Hall, was ordained subdeacon in 1457, Apl. 16 
(Addit. MSS. S826, p, 109), and Richard Roche, d.d., was presented to 
the Rectory of Little Shelford by William Freville, 18 Nov., 1473. In 
1494 Thomas Wardall, m.a., was presented to same rectory on resignation 
of Geoffrey Burrell. Addit MSS, 5827, p. 38. 

. The occurrence of Moche Shelford instead of Great Shelford is 
noticeable. Was it usual for * much ' to be used instead of * great ' in 
early times ? 

Meldreth, Roytton. W, M. Palmer. 


Isaac Applbton, m.p. for Sudbury, 1661, till his death about March, 
1662. Was he son of Sir Isaac Appleton (knighted July, 1603) of 
Waldingfield, Suffolk ? 

W. D. Pink. 

Suffolk Families. — I should be obliged for any genealogical 
information respecting the following Suffolk families: — Stedman or 
Steadman, and Bowie or Bowles. I believe the latter bore arms. 

A. E. S. 

New England Settlers : Kellogg Family. — Is there a list of 
vessels and passengers, which would show the departures from Ipswich, 
during the period of about a.d. 1630 ? I am anxious to note the names 
of early settlers bearing the name of Kellogg. Joseph, Samuel^ 
Nathaniel and Daniel Kellogg, probably born from 1620-30, were 
among the earliest. Tradition says they came from Suffolk and Essex. 
I should be glad of confirmation of this, or indeed any information 
respecting this family. 

San Francisco, Cal. Timothy Hopkins. 

The Family of Lenvbise. — Pipe Boll 1176 (21 Hen. ii.) "Henry 
Lenveise renders account of 40s. for having his plea in the King's Court 
Paid and quit." " Robert son of Ralph son of Bern " owes 40 marks for 
having a covenant made between him and Henry Licnveise in the Ck>urt 
of the Abbot of Ramsey." 

I shall be glad to hear of any further information concerning this 
old Cambs. family. The name occurs in very varied spellings, such as 
Levesque, Le Veske, Episcopus, Bissop, Enveyse and Veysie. They 
possessed a manor in Meldreth, still called by their name, in the I2th^ 
13th and 14th centuries. 

Meldreth, Royston, W. M. Palmer. 



In the course of a recent pleasant drive I lighted on the following two 
remarkable memorials of the unhappy quarrels of the days of Charles i. 

I. The document of which the following is a copy is in the 
possession of my neighbour, the Rev. H. S. Marriott, rector of Wil by. It 
is undated, but its limits are 1635, when ship-money was first generally 
demanded, and 1641, when Chief Justice Bramston was succeeded by 
Chief Justice Heath. 1638 is a not improbable date. 

To the right ho^^e S'^ John Bramston Kn*. Lord cheife Justice of 

The humble petic'on of the cheife inhabitats of Erie Stonham Most 
humbly sheweth vnto y** good Lop. Whereas formerly we petic'oned to 
y'* Ijop., and it was your LorP" pleasure to grante vs refference to the 
refferries desired as therebie apeareth, and is herew^ anezed, the 
p'cedings wherein by our second petic'ou alsoe anexed is sett forthe, 
unto w^** it was y l6ps pleasure .further to sett downe hereunto a direct 
order to the Justice att the q'ter sessions for the . determinac'on thereof; 
the w^^ we attended accordinglye and then <k there the whole being 
take considerac'on of the matters petic'oned and alsoe of y^. Lops 
Refferrence and thereupon ordered and concluded that for further 
informac'on to be had, and cause to be shewed by the said Samuel fflicke 
gent the p'tie complained againste to the contrarie, if he would, for his 
sayd rates, that a certeine daye soone after, the said m^ flycke and your 
Lope petic'oners shold be att Bottesdale in the' said countie before 
Sr Edmund Bacon Knt and barronett Sir Henry Bokenham Knt & 
Thomas Good wine esq. Justice on the benche and refferries whoe beinge 
accordingly attended, did finde noe cause to the contrary but in 
obseruaciou of y"" LoP* referrence and theire owne co'p'ions and fellowe 
Justice att the Sessions did make confirme and consigne this absolute 
order hereto anexed. And thereupon we the inhabitants of Erie 
Stonham y^ Lorps petic'oners assessed and rated the sayd Samuell fflicke 
gent for his lands in our towne equally and p'portionably as other lands 
of others are rated there or lesser rate. 

But soe itt is maye it please yr good Lop that mr highe Sherrife 
that nowe is for the last moneye payd for the ships for his maties 
seruice, beinge by some sinister means informed & perswaded wold nott 
allowe vs y*" Lops petitioners rate in regard we had assessed & rated the 
said Samuell fflick gent^ But inforced us to forbeare him ft p'mitted him 
to paye no hyere & what he wold otherwise to the detriment of y^ Lops 
petic'oners, not onely for the p^sent money thereby deteined butt alsoe 
throughe violateing this order as aforesaid the said M''. fflicke utterly 
denieth to be rated in all future rates, Except it maye please yr Lorp to 
take the pnnises into y^ iudicious considerac'on, and comand the order 
for the confirmation of the said order as shalbe for y petic'oners redress 



w^out further trouble. And they oliall pray for yout Lops health and 

Endorsed: — This hath noe i-eferens assigned in this petic'on but 
apoynted at the bench to attend at Botesdale. 


At Brundish I found in the Church an excellent copy of the 
Solemn League and Covenant 1643, by which the men who are now 
extolled as "passionate lovers of liberty" bound themselves to "extir- 
pate " the opinions of their fellows. It bears the following signatures : —

alx)ut all classes of people in Cambridgeshire at the beginning of the 
Civil War. (1) The petition sent up to Parliament about 1640, against 
the " Popish practices " of Bishop Wren. This is several feet long and 
contains several hundred signatures. (2) The lay subsidy of 1640-1, 
giving the rateable value of every estate in the county. (3 and 4) The 
accounts of the Scotch Loan for 1644 and 1645. I have copied all 
these documents, and intend to contribute them to the E<ut Anglian if 
space can be found for them. The two latter have only recently been 
added to the class of Exchequer subsidies at the Public Record Office, 
and so will probably be new to most readers. The account of the 
Collector for 1643-4 is here given as a first instalment. The reference 
to this record is Lay Subsidy W, it consists of a packet of seven paper 

1. A letter addressed to the Earl of Manchester at Cambridge, 
dated Feb. 23rd, 1643, and signed by Oliver St. John, John Ashe, 
William Ellis, and six othei-s. " Having lately received letters from the 
Scotch Army of the want of money which was agreed to be paid them, 
we have sent a commission to your lordship, which we desire you to give 
to some fit person, you being able to make a better choice, k help the 
present dispatch of this service." 

This being the outer document of the bundle is indorsed, "M»" 
Spaldings accompt for y« Scotch Loan rec^ 10 Nov. 1662." 

2. A letter addressed " To our verie loving friends the comrs for 
the Scotch affairs at Cambridge." 

Had hoped to have sent them an ordinance as promised to enable 
them further in raising the remainder of the sum imposed on them, but 
the earnest and urgent affairs of the commonwealth have hitherto 
prevented the House from the debate thereof. " Wee think it not fitt 
in expectacon thereof to delay the execucon of that power wch you have 
by the former ordinances, but desire that you would proceed to raise 
what you can by virtue of them, and wee shall expedite the other as 
much as may bee. We shall not further trouble you at present, only 
in the desire that the bearer hereof may receyve from you allowance for 
the time of his attendance, according to our former order, which we 
shall allow upon accompt. so resting your very loving friends

Sam^ Spalding. 

A particular account hereof both of receipts & disbursements was 
delivered to the comrs at Worster House under my hand uppon oath in 
the yeare 1653. 

This account had several acquittances under the hands of the Trers 
at Goldsmyth's Hall testifying their receipt of the above menconed some 


of £810 & divera other aoquittancefi & notes of receipts <fe other monieB 
particularly menconed in the above said order of allowances made by 
the coinittee at Goldsymth's Hall, & several other vouchers & receipts 
touching the Scot's money, & his incident eharges <k payments in that 
imploynient. But the study were the same were laid, being by casualty 
sett on fire after the year 1644 & before 1648, this accountant doth 
verily helieve the same were consumed ft defaced by occasion of that 
fire, or lost, so as since that time, he could never find them, <k therefore 
he craves the benefit of the Act of Indempnity in that behalfe, he being 
ready to make oath of the truth hereof. 

The words of the Act are as follows : — '* And that the oath of every 
accomptant in or between the years 1642-8, of what they have paid to 
any public use, by or according to any public or pretended order or 
authority whatsoever shall be a good discharge, as to so much of the 
accompt of such person or persons.

SuRKAMB Endings. — The old writings ''siste andbrothe" for 
** sister and brother " are commonly met with. It appears to be only 
of comparatively recent practice to pronounce words so curtailed as of 
a single syllable only. Up to the end of the 17th century such names 
as Faulke, Folke, Corde, were pronounced Fai^ker, Folker, Corder, in 
accordance with the ancient and present Teutonic usage. This fact, 
which does not admit of doubt, clears up much difiiculty in tracing; 
families whose patronymics have thus been abbreviated. 

Arthur Folkard. 


The following charters may throw some light on the pedigree of 
the ancient knightly family of Hoding, a family about which little is 
known, and the senior line of which became extinct about the beginning 
of the 14th century. The first member of this family on recoixl is 
Hugh de Hosdene, who held the manor of Weston in Foxearth under 
Roger Bigod at the time of the Domesday Survey. 

In the 12th century we find this family holding land at Castle 
Hedingham, Gosfield, West Ham, and Maplestead, Essex, under the de 
Veres and Montfitchets, and adding to their possession by marriage with 
the coheir of Walter de Windsor, when the lordships of fiuniham, 
Beaconsfield, Langley and Eton, passed to the Hodings. A farm and 
manor at Great Maplestead are still known as ' Hosdens.'

Av Abbitbation Dbbd (26 Eliz.) Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex. — 
A writing on a piece of parcbment stitcbed as a cover for a roll of old 
Wiltsbire deeds, contains a quaint account of an arbitration given (26tb 
Eliztb.) by William Tympley, Esq., who bad been chosen to decide 
disputes between Roger Warren, of Newbume, in the County of Suffolk, 
Esq., and William Canti^ell, of Chilverson, County of Norfolk, Qent., 
and Marye his wife, late the wife of Roger Warren, Gent., deceased, 
son and heir apparent of him the said Roger Warren, Esq. The decision 
seems to have been mostly in favour of the Cantrells, and a young son 
of Roger Warren, deceased. Some money due to them was to be paid 
in the " south porch of St. Marye Tower in Ipswich," and the manor of 
Motehall and other lands in Essex, appear to have been awarded them. 
** One tester and vallance of a bedde " had also to be given up, Wm. 
Cantrell paying 30s. to Roger the father "laid out by him for the 
imbroderiuge thereof." A '' fyne " was also exacted from the father for 
a " lease of a fowlinge peace whereof he had iiij coople of fowle wekely 
during that terme." 

One of the witnesses to this document was Henry Doylye, but the 
other signatures are indistinct.

The Rbv. Mr. Hitch of Ely. — lu the course of some researches 
into the history of the Cambridgeshire clergy who were ejected during 
the Civil War, I have come across the following particulars relating to 
this person, who is immortalised by Carlyle in his Oliver Cromtpell, 
Letter xiv. In 1641 a William Hitch, clerk, residing in Ely, paid 16s. 
to a subsidy (Lay Subsidy 4Vd). In January, 1643, the Rev. Mr. Hitch 
was turned out of Ely Cathedral by Cromwell, for persisting in reading 
the choir service, and on the strength of this alone apparently, is 
included in Walker's list (Walker, Suferings of the Clergy^ part 2, p. 23). 
Unfortunately the Parliamentary Surveys of the livings in the Isle of 
Ely in 1650, appear to have been lost ; for neither the payment of the 
original return in the P.R.O. (Chancery Miscellaneous Roll -h), nor the 
transcripts at Lambeth, contain any reference to this portion of the 
county, so we are deprived of knowing what opinions the two sets of 
Commissioners passed on Mr. Hitch. But on April 25th, 1650, he was 
ordered by the Committee for the Reformation of the Universities to 
receive an augmentation of J&50 a year to his salary, which was to be 

Slid out of Wichford rectory. He was then minister of the church of 
oly Trinity or Sextree (Lambeth ms. 978). He seems, like many 
another in his position, to have experienced some difficulty in getting 
his augmentation paid to him, for on Sep. 25th, 1657, a special order 
was issued by the Committee to the effect that he should be paid all his 
arrears at once (Lambeth ms. 995). But he died before they were paid, 
and on January 25th, 1658, they were ordered to be paid to his 
administrators (ib,) If these extracts all refer to the same person, 
wd get excellent proof that Mr. Hitch soon reconciled himself to the 
Puritan methods of worship. There was a wealthy yeoman family of this 
name living at Melboum at this period.

Hekrt Barrinoton m.p. for Essex in 1653. — Has his precise 
connection with Barringtons of Barrington Hall ever been ascertained ? 
Noble ( Cromicell Memoirs, ii., 47) suggests that he was a son of Robert 
Barrington of Bix)ad Oak, Essex, the second son of Sir Frances, first 
baronet. But the Barrington pedigree in the Vintation of Essex, 1634 
(Harl. Soc.), gives to Robert Barrington but one son, Thomas, then 
^^^^ years old, and as Henry B.
